Embargo Off!

An absolutely *lovely* reject from ChiZine on "House of the Rising Sun" today. Ah, so close--and yet so far away.

Well, at least I can send it off to "Say... aren't you dead?" in June. :-)

There is a house in New Orleans--
They call the Rising Sun
It's been the ruin of many a poor girl
And me, I know I'm one.

By the way, for anybody who's wondering--the song dates back around a hundred years, and the lyrics are public domain. I have about fourteen versions of it.

Tracy Chapman's is my favourite, but she cuts too many verses. The Doc Watson one is awfully good, too.

:-) Viva la folk tradition! (Wonder if I should mention that in my cover letters....)
