Welcome to this House Of The Rising Sun Guitar Tutorial by The Animals!
This is one of those classic guitar riffs that every beginner should learn. It has a lot of great elements to it which will benefit your guitar skills if practiced correctly including your basic open chord shapes and flatpicking. In this lesson I’ll teach you the flatpicked version as well as an easy strummed version for those who just want to sing along.

Big thanks to Eric Ben for his vocals on this track, check out his Youtube channel here – https://www.youtube.com/user/ericbengayomali

[Verse 1] 
      Am   C        D          F
There is a house in New Orleans
      Am       C      E
They call the "Rising Sun"
         Am       C       D           F
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
    Am     E         
And God, I know, I'm one

[Verse 2]
   Am     C     D        F
My mother was a tailor 
    Am       C        E
She sewed my new blue jeans 
   Am     C     D        F
My father was a gambling man
Am      E     
Down in New Orleans.

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

O, mother, tell your children  
       Am      C      E 
Not to do what I have done  
Am         C        D           F
Spend your lives in sin and misery
       Am       E     
In the House of Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform 
    Am         C      E
The other foot on the train 
    Am    C       D     F
I'm going back to New Orleans  
   Am        E        
To wear that ball and chain
