The Second Generation - Ready Or Not Here I Come / House Of The Rising Sun album mp3
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 gamblin' man Down in New Orleans. Now the only thing a gambler needs Is a suitcase and trunk And the only time he'll be satisfied Is when he's all drunk. Oh mother tell your children Not to do what I have done Spend your lives in sin and misery In the House of the Rising Sun. Well, I got one foot on the platform The other foot on the train I'm goin'.
The House of the Rising Sun" is a traditional folk song, sometimes called "Rising Sun Blues". It tells of a life gone wrong in New Orleans; many versions also urge a sibling or parents and children to avoid the same fate. The most successful commercial version, recorded in 1964 by British rock group The Animals, was a number one hit on the UK Singles Chart and also in the United States and France.

The "rising sun" has been a symbol for brothels in British and American ballads. In the traditional folk version of the song, the main character is either a prostitute or a prisoner. The Animals changed it to a gambler to make their version more radio-friendly. It is not known whether or not the house described in the lyrics was an actual or a fictitious place. There is a B&B in New Orleans called the House of the Rising Sun, decorated in brothel style. The owners are fans of the song, but there is no connection with the original place. A. The Animals Lyrics
There are also further unconfirmed implications of The Rising Sun being related to other folk songs, one of which, is the folk song Matty Groves. The ancient tune that changed modern music forever. One thing is clear, that the original The House of the Rising Sun is older than New Orleans itself, as the city was founded in 1718.
Rolling Stone included the Animals' "House of the Rising Sun" on its list of the greatest songs of all time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame declared the 1964 hit one of the songs that shaped rock and roll. And in 1999, the song was granted a Grammy Hall of Fame award. But if there ever was an unlikely candidate for a number one hit, this is it. The Animals didn't come up with this song themselves: It's been sung in one form or another for at least 100 years, though possibly for hundreds. There was a sort of disconnect here-it was almost hard to believe that listeners were really hearing this painful, melancholy tale from a bunch of British kids in matching suits. Unfortunately, the band as it was then wouldn't last long.
Known for their gritty, raw, bluesy sound and hard-voiced frontman Eric Burdon, as exemplified by their signature songs House of the Rising Sun and Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, the band underwent numerous personnel changes, while influencing the later heavy metal music with the riffs of their rock songs such as We Gotta Get Out Of This Place and It's.
You can play this with or without a capo. Personally I like playing it with capo on 1st or 2nd fret. Finger picking is optional, but it sounds nicer. Am C D F There is a house in New Orlea. House Of The Rising Sun chords.
