David Allan Coe - House Of The Rising Sun guitar chord

David Allan Coe

House of the Rising Sun

G Bb C D# G D G D

G Bb C D# G

There is a house, in New Orleans,

Bb D

They call the Rising Sun,

G Bb C D# G

And it’s been the ruin of many a boy,

D G D

Lord knows I was one.

G Bb C D# G

My Father was a gambler,

Bb D

He lived by the gun,

G Bb C D#

He swore someday he’d take me to the play,

G D G D

At the House of the Rising Sun.

G Bb C D# G

My mother was a lady,

Bb D G

She never hurt no one,

Bb C

She cursed the day,

D# G D G D

I went to play in the House of the Rising Sun.

G Bb C D# G

She said, “ you’re like your daddy boy,

Bb D G

Livin’ on the run,

Bb C D#

Someday you’ll draw a dead man’s hand,

G D G D

In the House of the Rising Sun.

G Bb C D# G Bb D, G Bb C D# G D G D (X2)

G Bb C D# G

So listen all you gamblers,

Bb D

Don’t do what I have done,

G Bb C D#

You’ll lose the things that you love the most,

G D G D

In the House of the Rising Sun.

G Bb C D# G

There is a house in New Orleans,

Bb D

They call the Rising Sun,

G Bb C D# G

And it’s been the luck of many poor boys,

D G D

And I guess that I was one.

G Bb C D# G Bb D, G Bb
