Lullaby and good night, with roses bedight
With lilies o'er spread is baby's wee bed
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

Lullaby and good night, thy mother's delight
Bright angels beside my darling abide
They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast
They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast

Beginner violin sheet music for "House of the Rising Sun"

This version is the traditional Blues version and inspiration for the rendition that Eric Burdon and the Animals made famous in the sixties, (pay special attention to the first, third, fourth and fifth verses). This song sounds great when played slowly and evenly in 2/4 time, like a ballad. If you're wondering why the reference is mainly female, it is because the Rising Sun was a brothel as well as a gambling house.

The following rendition of House of the Rising Sun features the Fretless Finger Guides® color coded violin tablature. See a more detailed explanation on our how to use it page.

Additional lyrics for House of the Rising Sun

If I had listened to what mama said,
I'd be at home today.
But being so young and foolish poor girl,
let a gambler lead me astray.

My husband is a gambling man,
he goes from town to town.
And the only time he's satisfied,
is when he drinks his liquour down.

The only thing a gambling man needs,
is a suitcase and a trunk.
And the only time he's satisfied,
is when he's on a drunk.

Go tell my baby sister,
never do like I have done.
To shun that house in New Orleans,
they call the Rising Sun.

It's one foot on the platform,
and the other on the train.
I'm going back to New Orleans,
to wear the ball and chain.

color coded violin sheet music for nobody knows you when you're down and out

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, with never a care
Takin' all my friends out for a good time
Drinkin' high-priced liquor, champagne and wine;
Then I began to fall so low;
Didn't have a friend, and noplace to go
If I ever get my hands on a dollar again
I'm gonna squeeze it, until the eagle grins, cause

Nobody knows you when you're down and out.
In your pocket, not one penny
And your friends -- you find you haven't any.
But as soon as you get back on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
It's might strange, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you're down and out.
