The Lyrics

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 Christian
Who tried to sew my seed.
But, I became a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans.

Now the only things this gambler needs
Are my suitcase and my trunk.
But, the only time the Devil's satisfied
Is when I’m on a drunk.

------ Organ solo ------

Oh Jesus I am wicked.
A man without one plea.
My life’s been lived in sin so far,
Not for You to please.

Well, I got one foot in the gutter
The other foot in the grave.
The only thing I can believe
Is that the Lord will Save.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

------ Organ solo with crescendo ------
