Let me start off by saying I don't know what chord this is:

e|-------0-----|
B|------2--2---|
G|-----1-----1-|
D|-------------|
A|-------------|
E|-0-----------|

In all the other posts of this song, they call it an E7. But an E7 looks like 020100.  It sounds right though, so I guess I'll call it an E7, too.  Does anyone know how to play the organ solos on guitar?  If so, contact me via e-mail.  Anyway, my tab should be the most accurate of all the other posts of this song.

Intro:

    Am               C              D              F 
e|-------0-----|-------0-----|-------2-----|-------1-----|
B|------1--1---|------1--1---|------3--3---|------1--1---|
G|-----2-----2-|-----0-----0-|-----2-----2-|-----2-----2-|
D|-------------|-------------|-0-----------|-3-----------|
A|-0-----------|-3-----------|-------------|-------------|
E|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|

      Am              E7           Am               E7
e|-------0-----|-------0-----|-------0-----|-------0-----|
B|------1--1---|------2--2---|------1--1---|------2--2---|
G|-----2-----2-|-----1-----1-|-----2-----2-|-----1-----1-|
D|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
A|-0-----------|-------------|-0-----------|-------------|
E|-------------|-0-----------|-------------|-0-----------|
                                                           


This part repeats throughout the rest of the song and is also the solo backing:

Lyrics:

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 gambling man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and a trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's all drunk

Oh, Mother 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've got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm going 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
