courtney love – the house of the rising sun (live) lyrics


[verse 1]
there is a house in new orleans
oh 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 b-tch one
she sewed my new blue jeans
and my father was a gamblin’ man
down in new orleans
[verse 3]
now the only thing a gambler needs
is a suitcase and a trunk
and the only time that he’s satisfied
it’s when he’s on a f-cking drunk

[guitar solo]

[verse 4]
now mother tell your children
not to do what i have done
spend their lives in sin and misery
in the house of the rising sun
