and, God, I know I'm one.

is when he's down and drunk.

So, mothers tell, tell your children 
       Am      C      E                 E 
not to do what I have done ... aahoooo, 
       Am          C        D           F 
not to spend there lives in sin and misery 
       Am           E      Am       E 
in the House of the Rising Sun. 


      Am       C      D        F

I'm goin' now (home?) to New Orleans 
   Am        E        Am       E 
to wear that ball and chain.
