Dolly Parton House Of The Rising Sun Lyrics

Last updated: 03/03/2005 10:00:00 AM

There is a house in New Orleans down in the Vieaux Carre
A house they call the Rising Sun where love and money are made

My father he was a gambler mother died when I was young
And I've worked since then to pleasure the men
At the house of the Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans they call the Rising sun
It's been the ruin of many a good girl and oh God you know I'm one

So mothers you go tellin' all your daughters not to do what I have done
To live a life of sin shame and strife in the house of the Rising Sun

There is a house down in New Orleans they call the Rising sun
It's been the ruin of many a good girl and oh God you know I'm one
Oh God you know I'm one oh God you know I'm one
