House of the Rising Sun

By Wild Bill Fuckup on April 22, 2018 8:29 pm

Can't be original all the time. I settled into playing it this way a while back, thinking that the repeated lines over a driving single-chord drone give it a nice punch.

These are my favorite versions:
Joan Baez
Pete Seeger
Roscoe Holcomb
