Released July 30, 2013 © The Statue of David + + + + + + + + + + There is a house in New Orleans They call the rising sun And it’s been the ruin of many a poor girl And me, oh God, for one If I had listened to what mama said I’d be at home today Being so young and foolish (poor boy) Let a rambler lead me astray Go tell my baby sister Never do like I have done To shun that house in New Orleans They call the rising sun My mother she’s a tailor She sewed my new blue jeans My sweetheart he’s a drunkard, Lord, He drinks down in New Orleans The only thing a drunkard needs Is a suitcase and a trunk And the only time he’s satisfied Is when he’s on a drunk Fills his glasses to the brim Passes them around Only pleasure he gets out of life Is hoboing from town to town One foot is on the platform And the other’s on the train I’m going back to New Orleans To wear that ball and chain Going back to New Orleans My race is almost run Going back to spend the rest of my days Beneath that rising sun.
