Supremes, The - The House Of The Rising Sun Lyrics




There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor girl
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
Sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
The only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

Oh, mother tell your children
Not to do what we have done
Spend your lives in chear misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many poor girl
And God I know I'm one

  1. Voltaire Slapadelic

    I want to hear every version of this song ever

  2. gk10002000

    Go home devil. You lost. The ladies smashed your ass.

  3. gk10002000

    2:55 I mean. This is un worldly

  4. Moutton Noir

    Diana Ross sounds like Minnie Mouse on this recording

  5. david miller

    me, too.  peace.

  6. Lindsey Woolsey

    Wow!!! how beautiful they sounded together...Simply Amazing The Supremes were. Long Live The Supremes!!!!!!

  7. Micaï. Claude.

    Fantastic The Supremes.
    Diana Ross. The best.

  8. gk10002000

    The guitar has the sound of my old Fender solid maple telecaster.  I never really liked the darn thing.  It weighed a ton!

  9. gk10002000

    Does anybody know of a live recording of this in concert?

  10. gk10002000

    Another thing that stands out to me in this recording is the completely even tempo of the song.  The musicians never ran away with it.  This usually means it was a lot and lot of rehearsing until it was done right.  Something that is hard to do these days.  Back then I bet the girls had to work harder and longer and were motivated to get out of where they came from and make it

  11. gk10002000

    02:58.  Just hauntingly beautiful vocals.  I wish they did that a few more times

  12. gk10002000

    I hope people learn to appreciate what a good voice sounds like, without too much electronic patching up.  This is really nice.  And I like the thumping bass playing

    I had the CD The Supremes A Bit Of Liverpool someone stole it from my collection I also had The Supremes sing Weston Country and pop The Supremes sing Roger and Hart gone but I do have The Supremes We Remember Sam Cook. I love Flo version of Aint that good news.

    Que voces tan lindas.

    Always heard the rumor that this one was originally to be all Flo, and that's why she's so prominent here. The song does only pick up after she starts, really. Love it because of her. It's just not in Diana's range.

    i am so glad you enjoyed it!

    This is a wonderful photo montage. The "A Bit Of Liverpool" was The Supremes love letter to the boy brit bands of the day. A big gamble on their record label's part, which may not have paid off they way they had hoped, but what a cool legacy to vocal prowess of The Supremes to have pulled this off, and so well to (beatles) boot!

    1 of my favorite Supreme album covers. This cover isn't too shabby either.
