                    HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN - The Animals
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tab by Nathan Lambert, based on the tab by Chayes.

I made some changes to Chayes' tab. Mainly, I made it more compact so I
could see the lyrics better, but I left the Intro chords as an example of the
picking pattern. The *'s are where you should be keeping time somehow! In the
comments section of another tab, some people said they were having trouble
with the "extra" notes, so I put those in parentheses (). Playing them does
sound more like the song, but your (probably drunk) friends won't care if you
leave em out. I also fixed how the chords lined up with the lyrics to 
something that makes more sense to me. Hope this helps someone. Cheers!
