INTRO

They are a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
Where many poor boy to destruction has gone
And me, oh God, for one

GUITAR YODEL

Just fill the glass up to the brim
Let the drinks go merrily around
We'll drink to the life of a rounder, poor boys,
Who goes from town to town

GUITAR YODEL

All in this world, does a rounder want
Is a suitcase and a trunk
The only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

GUITAR YODEL

Now boys, don't believe what a young girl tells you
Let her eyes be blue or brown
Unless she's on some scaffold high
Saying, "Boys, I can't come down."

GUITAR YODEL

I'm going back to New Orleans
For my race is almost run
To spend the rest of my wicked life
Beneath the Rising Sun
