A Boy from New Orleans

Original: Animals – “The House of the Rising Sun”

A boy from New Orleans

Just stay the night

In prison there the ends of the city

For him, the day ends.

Forgive me, Mother, I was wrong,

I was wrong in his youth,

But you’re a mother, you will forgive me

Because as I forgave youth.

Oh, mother, you listen to me

And keep to His children

From the moment in which you’d be wrong

Just as I was wrong in my youth.

I had a home in New Orleans

With high blue walls.

It was my house of love

But it became the home of death.

Oh, goodbye world goodbye, sunny day

Sky, winds and stars

Lover, you forget about me

And only Mother, you forgive me.
