The Animals-House of the Rising Sun

Post by sparky12 on Thu May 22, 2008 4:47 pm

It'd be a sin for me to have a favorite song, but I'll have to say this is one of my favorites. It's depressing, but beautiful. Oh, and it has a nifty organ solo. You should give it a listen sometime.

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 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

------ organ solo ------

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' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

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

EDIT: And you could listen to the song here. And it's not even blocked by the school!

Fighting the power is cool, 'cause it's from the 1960's, and the 1960's are cool 'cause of their music. But not here...

Nice. Simple, but nice. I didn't get a chance to listen though because my speakers are broken. Sad
