House of the Rising Sun — lyrics slightly changed

TTTO “The Horsetamer’s Daughter”, Leslie Fish

My mother was a pants tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
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’s satisfied
Is when he’s on a drunk

[Chorus]
Well, 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

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 on the train
I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

[Chorus]
