The House of the Rising Sun" is a traditional folk song, sometimes called "Rising Sun Blues". It tells of a life gone wrong in New Orleans; many versions also urge a sibling or parents and children to avoid the same fate. The most successful commercial version, recorded in 1964 by British rock group The Animals, was a number one hit on the UK Singles Chart and also in the United States and France.

There is a house in New Orleans They call the Rising Sun And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy And God, I know I'm one. My mother was a tailor She 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 And the only time he'll be satisfied Is when he's all drunk.

The "rising sun" has been a symbol for brothels in British and American ballads. In the traditional folk version of the song, the main character is either a prostitute or a prisoner. The Animals changed it to a gambler to make their version more radio-friendly. It is not known whether or not the house described in the lyrics was an actual or a fictitious place. There is a B&B in New Orleans called the House of the Rising Sun, decorated in brothel style. The owners are fans of the song, but there is no connection with the original place. A.
