  1. animals'a ait bu şarkıyı joan baez yorumuyla dinlemek daha bir önemli.
  2. joan baez'in insan vücudunda form bulmuş melek sesi ile dinlendiğinde; insanı bulunduğu yerden alıp new orleans'taki söz konusu eve kadar götüren mükemmel şarkı. sözleri de şöyledir;

    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 tailor
    she sewed my new blue jeans
    my father was a gamblin' man
    down in new orleans

    now the only thing a gambler needs
    is a suitcase and trunk
    and the only time he's satisfied
    is when he's on a drunk

    oh mother tell your children
    not to do what i have done
    spend your lives in sin and misery
    in the house of the rising sun

    well, i got one foot on the platform
    the other foot on the train
    i'm goin' back to new orleans
    to wear that ball and chain

    well, 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
