INTRO  GUITAR STRUMMING THEN ALL COME IN ON A CHORD 
She just jumped on a plane Paid no attention to me  
Gave me no notice But her goodbyes sure were sweet 
Said she's gonna write Maybe call me up 
She checked her bags And then she broke my heart 
She kissed my cheek And told me not to keep in touch 
I said the Rising Sun just stole my girl away 
The Rising Sun just stole my girl away 
The Rising Sun just stole my girl 
N.C.  
I'm gonna catch a plane and steal her back again 
The Rising Sun just stole my girl away 
Now we're apart I think about her everyday 
Well the scuffle of little feet All round the bed 
I'm gettin' no cards, gettin' no mail My girl ain’t on the telephone 
If she don't come home I know that's where I'm gonna go 
Chorus 
BRIDGE 
They're buying our beaches Sellin' transistors 
Them little folk look real big 
If they think that they can take her away 
I'm gonna steal her back again . . . Shake! 
SOLO LIKE VERSE PIANO THEN GUITAR 
I said the Rising Sun just stole my girl away 
The Rising Sun just stole my girl away 
The Rising Sun just stole my girl 
Gonna catch a plane and steal her back again 
The Rising Sun just stole my girl away   
REPEAT Chorus AND END
