lyrics

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the rising sun.
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy.
And God I know I'm one.

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

Oh mothers tell your children
Not to do as I have done.
We spend our lives in sin and misery
In the house of the rising sun.

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound.
It saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found.
Was blind but now I see.
I see.

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the rising sun.
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy.
And god I know I'm one.
