House of the Rising Sun
- coll, adap & arr with new words and music by John A. Lomax, Alan Lomax & Georgia Turner
Rise Up Singing chapter: Hard Times & Blues, p.101
I don't use the first chord pattern provided, I prefer the alternate one:
Am C D F / Am C E - / 1st / Am E Am E
And that's all there is to it. I didn't talk much in this video because I wasn't alone in the apartment, which makes me uncomfortble about talking to the camera. This is the last Hard Times & Blues song I'll do for a while, since other chapters need some loving too. Maybe a round. Maybe a family song. Sal, a good friend of mine in Vermont, recorded a Rise Up Singing song and sent it to me and I'm going to ask for her permission to post it on here this week too.
