      About "Rising Sun Blues"

      Lyrics for Doc Watson - "Rising Sun Blues"

      There is a house down in New Orleans
      They call the Rising Sun
      And it's been the ruin of a many poor boy
      And me, oh God, for one

      Then fill the glasses to the brim
      Let the drinks go merrily around
      And we'll drink to the health of a rounder poor boy
      Who goes from town to town

      The only thing that a rounder needs
      Is a suitcase and a trunk
      And the only time he's satisfied
      Is when he's on a drunk

      Now boys, don't believe what a girl tells you
      Though her eyes be blue or brown
      Unless she's on some scaffold high
      Saying, "Boys, I can't come down"

      Go tell my youngest brother
      Not to do the things I've done
      But to shun that house down in New Orleans
      They call the Rising Sun

      I'm going back, back to New Orleans
      For my race is nearly run
      Gonna spend the rest of my wicked life
      Beneath that Rising Sun
