I didn’t originally intend to post this. It was for my own reference,
a person in another forum was asking about tabs for this, so here it is.

/ and mean bend up to the note or bend down from the note. (The backward
slash I typed above wouldn’t show up when I posted the tab.) “g” means gliss.
Well, none of the backslashes show up. Just listen to the video.

House of the Rising Sun (Hakan Ehn style) Lyrics


There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
Dear God, I know I was one
My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
And my father was a gamblin’ man
Way down in New Orleans
And the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase in the trunk
And the only time he’s satisfied
Is when he’s on a drunk
Oh mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Don’t spend your life in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun
I got one foot on the platform
And another on the train
And I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy
Dear God, I know I was one
Dear God, I know I was the one
