Five Finger Death Punch – House Of The Rising Sun lyrics

{Intro]

[Verse 1]
There is a house in Sin City
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know I'm one

[Verse 2]
My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in Sin City

[Instrumental and Guitar solo]

[Verse 3]
Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and a trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

{Pre-Chorus]
Well, I've got one foot on the platform
The other's on the train
I'm goin' back to Sin City
To wear that ball and chain

[Instrumental hook]

{Chorus]
Well, mother, tell your children
Never do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the house of the rising sun

[Hook]
In the house of the rising sun

[Verse 1-Outro]
Well, there is a house in Sin City
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, knows I, I'm one...
