                   She sewed my new blue jeans                
                   My father was a gambling man               
                   Down in New Orleans                        
                                                              
                   And the only things a gambler needs        
                   Is a suitcase and a trunk                  
                   And the only time he's satisfied           
                   Is when he's all a-drunk

                   The other foot on the train                
                   I'm going back to New Orleans              
                   To wear the ball and chain                 
                                                              
                   So mothers, tell your children             
                   Not to do what I have done                 
                   Spend your life in sin and misery          
                   In the house of the Rising Sun

I think this is an improvement over the tab you have for the Animals' 
version of House of the Rining Sun. This version has the descending bass 
that really makes their arrangement.
I play the F# in the D/F# chord with my thumb; the chord could also be 
fingered like this:

--2--ring finger
--3--pinkie
--2--middle finger
--0--
--0--
--2--forefinger

I generally use a full barre for the F, but that could also be done by 
stopping the low E string with the thumb.



House of the Rising Sun
The version roughly follows the Animals version, but it's 
been a while since I played it, and I may have muffed a few
notes. Anyway, this gives you the general idea.
It's my second try at writing and posting tab; if anyone can give
a helpful suggestion to make it better next time, I'd appreciate
the advice.

"House of the Rising Sun" as covered by the Animals
transcribed by Thom A. G. II

Of the versions I have seen so far, none seem quite right to me.  After
reviewing the others I listened to it and here's what I got.

standard tuning, 6/8 time (six beats per measure)

intro: A E7 A C D F A E7 A E7 A - i think, but it is 
somewhere in the middle of the regular progression:
A C D F | A C E E7 | A C D F | *A E7 A C D F A E7 A E7 | repeat thru out

RYTHM:/   /// / / | /   /// / / | ETC.
BEATS:1 2 3 4 5 6 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 | ECT.

I heard mention of the bass notes for the guitar being instead of 
mine as A down to G down to F down to E.  I deffinitely do not hear
that in the animals recorded cover of this song.  If there is something
I just dont know, and you do please make it known.
