Announcing the House of the Rising Sun Musical Challenge!

Send in your own version of this great American lament via a link in the Comments section. And, please, no Utubes. Also please send in any (short) literary pieces inspired by The House of the Rising Sun and/or the subject of brothels in general.

Here is Bumba’s entry – which I did in A minor using a pick and the Animals progression.

(And if you think it’s easy to hold a pick and an Animals progression at the same time with or without whistling Dixie, well, you have another thing coming!)

As with all the Bumbasongs presented here, the hope is that you will sing along. As you can see, or rather hear, I need help! Vocalists wanted!
