Υπάρχει μία σύγχυση όσον αφορά τους αρχικούς δημιουργούς του τραγουδιού, όπως θα δείτε στη σελίδα: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_the_Rising_Sun, όπου περιγράφεται όλη η ιστορία του υπέροχου αυτού τραγουδιού.

The real house?

Various places in New Orleans, Louisiana have been proposed as the inspiration for the song, with varying plausibility. Only two candidates have historical documentation as using the name "Rising Sun"; both having listings in old period city directories. The first was a small short-lived hotel on Conti Street in the French Quarter in the 1820s. An excavation and document search in early 2005 found evidence supporting this claim, including an advertisement with language that may have euphemistically indicated prostitution. The second was a late 19th century "Rising Sun Hall" on the riverfront of the uptown Carrollton neighborhood, which seems to have been a building owned and used for meetings of a Social Aid & Pleasure Club, commonly rented out for dances and functions. Definite links to gambling or prostitution, if any, are undocumented for either of these buildings, neither of which still exist. A guidebook called Offbeat New Orleans asserts that the real House of the Rising Sun was at 826–830 St. Louis St. between 1862 and 1874 and was purportedly named for its madam, Marianne LeSoleil Levant, whose surname translates to "The Rising Sun."

It is possible that the "House of the Rising Sun" is a metaphor for either the slave pens of the plantation, the plantation house, or the plantation itself, which were the subjects and themes of many traditional blues songs. Dave van Ronk claimed in his autobiography that he had seen pictures of the old New Orleans Prison for Women, the entrance to which was decorated with a rising sun design. He considered this proof that the House of the Rising Sun had been a nickname for the prison.

Lyric

The traditional lyric, as recorded by Lomax, are as follows:

    There is a house in New Orleans
    They call the Rising Sun.
    It's been the ruin of many a poor boy,
    And me, O God, for one.

    If I had listened what Mamma said,
    I'd 'a' been at home today.
    Being so young and foolish, poor boy,
    Let a rambler lead me astray.

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

    My mother she's a tailor;
    She sold those new blue jeans.
    My sweetheart, he's a drunkard, Lord, Lord,
    Drinks down in New Orleans.

    The only thing a drunkard needs
    Is a suitcase and a trunk.
    The only time he's satisfied
    Is when he's on a drunk.

    Fills his glasses to the brim,
    Passes them around
    Only pleasure he gets out of life
    Is hoboin' from town to town.

    One foot is on the platform
    And the other one on the train.
    I'm going back to New Orleans
    To wear that ball and chain.

    Going back to New Orleans,
    My race is almost run.
    Going back to spend the rest of my days
    Beneath that Rising Sun.
