Reel 267 Item 13 HOUSE IN NEW ORLEANS
There is a house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun,
It’s been the ruin of many a poor boy And me, Oh Lord, for one,
Go tell my youngest brother Not to do as I have done,
To shun that house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun.
Well, pass around your glasses,boys,
We’ll fill them to the brim,
And We’ll drink to the health of a rounder’s poor boy
Hobos from town to town,
Well, the only thing that a drunkard needs Is a suitcase and a gun,
For the only time he’s satisfied Is when he’s on a drunk.
Billie Lou Ratliff For:
