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.
