alt-J - House Of The Rising Sun (Tuka Version) Lyrics




[Tuka:]
You called me today
You told me you were gonna die
(Father, father, father)
What was I gonna say?
Sorry, I don't wanna lie
(My father, father, father)
You remind me of this old folk song that got passed around
You used to sing it
I bet the songs that you sang inside of that pub
Didn't just pay for your dinner

Party like an animal
It was a party with the animals

Sink a lot of liquor
Kiss a lot of women
How many could you pick up?
My mother is sick
Sitting pretty in the middle of a letter
Mom said you're the reason I started
One day she got sick again and hit her
You could have had it all
Instead, she had enough

[alt-J:]
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor soul
And, Lord, my father's one

[Tuka:]
With me and my sister
We had to leave behind mister
My mother was a high planes drifter
She said I could ride with her
We started again as a party of three with a heart on a sleeve
She asked for redemption
In need of a friend
He was charming I guess, but history repeats
Pardon the cliché, it was hart to believe
I can't pretend like you
He was no father to me

Motherfucker was an animal
Was a party with the animals

Strum a guitar
In our house of the rising sun
You beat my mother
In our madhouse of the rising sun
Drunk on Monday
Was his father's son
In the background singing
This is the song he sang

[alt-J:]
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor soul
And, Lord, my father's one

    [Verse 1: Tuka]
    You called me today, you told me you were gonna die
    (Father, father, father)
    What was I gonna say? Sorry, I don’t wanna lie
    (My father, father, father)
    You remind me of this old folk song that got passed around
    You used to sing it
    I bet the songs that you sang inside of that pub
    Didn’t just pay for your dinner
    Party like an animal
    It was a party with the animals

    [Verse 2: Tuka]
    Sink a lot of liquor, kiss a lot of women
    How many could you pick up? My money’s six
    Sittin' pretty in the middle of a letter
    Mum said you’re the reason I stutter
    One day she got sick again, it hit her
    You could have had it all
    Instead, she had enough

    [Chorus: alt-J]
    There is a house in New Orleans
    They call the Rising Sun
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor soul
    And, Lord, my father's one

    [Verse 3: Tuka]
    With me and my sister, we had to leave behind mister
    My mother was a high planes drifter, she said I could ride with her
    We started again as a party of three with our heart on our sleeves
    She asked for redemption, in need of a friend
    He was charming I guess, but history repeats
    Pardon the cliché, it was hard to believe
    I can’t pretend like you, he was no father to me
    Motherfucker was an animal
    Wants to party with the animals

    [Verse 4: Tuka]
    Strum a guitar, in our house of the rising sun
    You beat my mother in our madhouse of the rising sun
    Drunk on Monday, was his father’s son
    In the background singing, this is the song he sung

    [Chorus: alt-J]
    There is a house in New Orleans
    They call the Rising Sun
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor soul
    And, Lord, my father's one

    [Spoken Outro]
    [?], it was in me repertoire for quite a little while, oh, for years
    And then I’ve gotta bring the how I could do it in such a way
    With little finger picks on a twelve-string guitar, strung six strings
    So, I had this huge guitar, really big guitar
    With a big lot of noise in it
    And I’d do "The House of the Rising Sun"
    But you had to wait 'til you had enough drunks around
    Can you understand that?
    Like, you must have got, you wait until you've got enough drunks And you’d go, "Right" and sing "The House of the Rising Sun"
    And they’d be singing away and carrying on
    And throwing money in the box
    It was a good on

    is there a skippng sound goin on like the song has a scratch on it wtf

    Ryan Wong

    Nah it must be your device

  11. EffinStephen

    This is a hip-hop version of a radical reinterpretation of a song that's been covered countless times, made famous by the Animals and later Bob Dylan, first recorded by an Appalachian folk band in 1928, who learned the song from their grandparents. Its authorship and date of origin are entirely unclear, but it seems to have evolved, one version to the next, from old folk ballads we wouldn't even recognize as the same song anymore.

    ამ სევდას ცრემლები შველის?

    Salome Lipartia

    არა.

    მარიამ ქობალია

    ჰაი, არა

    albertcamus washere

    სევდა ყველაზე ადამიანური ემოციაა და ამავე დროს ყველაზე მეტად ეს ემოცია გზრდის... როდესაც სევდას დროებით ამარცხებ და რამოდენიმე ხნის შემდეგ ისევ უბრუნდები ახალ გზას ეძებ ,,გამოსაჯანმრთელებლად" და ამ სწორედ ამ გზებს მიყვავართ საკუთარ თავის აღმოჩენა/შეცნობამდე... საკუთარი თავის თანაგრძნობა სიძლიერეა, გადალახული ბარიერებით ვაღწევთ უმაღლეს საფეხურს, საიდანაც ჩვენს ძველ ,,მე-ს" გადმოვყურებთ და ისევ სევდით აღსავსენი ვამაყობთ საკუთარ თავზე გამარჯვებას... და ასე უსასრულოდ, დაუსრულებლად ავდივართ და ჩამოვდივართ ჩვენივე შექმილ საფეხურებზე... სევდას როგორ შველი?! საკუთარ თავს როგორ ერევი?!

  13. Ben Anon

    BEST SONG ON ALBUM

  14. Matthew Lee

    Last minute of the song absolutely ruined by the nonsensical audio that goes on for way too long. Good job ruining your own song in a vain attempt to evoke more emotion from me

    Panda Parade

    Matthew Lee or maybe it's just not your style, stop complaining about it
    They made it so they must have felt something from it themselves

  15. Shlomi Sakal

    I thought it was Mike Shinoda at first

  16. mia M

    This is so fucking beaut

  17. Zakacat

    I have listened to this song intently at least 2 times a day for two weeks now. I can relate to Tuka's story. The chorus is so haunting, I could walk in the rain for hours.

  18. Ferrer Jair

    Wow i passed out

  19. Lizbeth Rodríguez Cortes

    Thanks Alt-J 🙌

  20. Lizbeth Rodríguez Cortes

    It's AMAZING!

  23. Celeste Bates

  24. D3Bill

    If you haven't ideas about name of your new album so you always can change 2 letters in name previous album

    D3Bill

    Sorry for my бляd russian englisш

    Marsplanet 182

    Why not, it’s just a remix album of Relaxer

    D3Bill

  25. Gaëlle Shearn

    Can I fucking stop getting emotional?

  26. Alastrine

    What the fuck happened to you guys? I appreciate my favourite artists exprimenting like anyone else. But this is NOT you guys. Legit, one of my favourite bands and all these new songs suck. Where's that trippy crazy vibe with the psycho lyrics thrown in? Like in cold blood is my absolute favourite song. I'm sorry I'm being so harsh. I was really excited for a new album and even begged my local alternative radio station to play you guys. I finally got them to get In cold blood to play on the radio. Then you all come out with this. What even...

    Silvia Anaisa

    Alastrine this song is beautiful!

  27. El Putin

    La canción empieza en el minuto 0:00 . Denada :)

    Alt J is really good, but IT has nothing to do with the original and if they have tried to make a new modern version.....sorry but i don't like it! But nobody is perfect ;-)

  34. Awan Theus

    the original song is 'Sun', but this version they've written about a father & his 'Son', so it's kinda both I guess
