There is a house in New Orleans

Now, the only thing a gambler needs

and the only time that he's satisfied
Am Am E E Am Am
is when he's on a drunk

Am Am C C D D F F
Oh, Mother, tell your children
Am Am C C E E E E
not to do what I have done

in the house of the Risin' Sun

Well, I've got one foot on the platform

the other foot on the train

to wear that ball and chain
