There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
Well it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know, I'm one

Well Mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Or you'll spend your life in sin and misery
In the house of the Rising Sun

Well there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
Well it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know, I'm one

    I'll agree that it's a good song and original... But this is definitely not better than any other remakes. They totally stray away from the songs meaning.

    Shame this isn't on any of their albums... This is much better than any other cover. They cut out most, if not all, of the crap and basically rewrote the song. Guitar = amazing. Not like the other versions, which last for about a month, and are so slow and depressing.

    Great song.
