日昇之屋

Lyricist: PRICE, ALAN    Composer: PRICE, ALAN


There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And Lord I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and a trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's gone and drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to go and do what I have done
To spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

I got one foot on the platform
The other foot it's on the train
I'm goin' going back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And Lord I know I'm one
