“Oh the fox went out on a chilly night,
And he prayed to the moon for to give him light.
He had many a mile to go that night,
Afore he reached the town-O,
Town-O, town-O,
He had many a mile to go that night,
Afore he reached the town-O.”

House of the Rising Sun,  Particularlly Odetta’s version.  Although it was the Animals version that was nearly an anthem ffor us Viet Nam Vets.

That’s one of my favorites and one the first songs I learned on the guitar. As to an anthem Gary I would have thought the Country Joe song “What are we fightin’ for”? It was popular among the vets I knew back then.

I once heard on a radio the House of the Rising Sun played in the style of Ravel’s Bolero. It was absolutely amazing. I guess the House of the Rising Sun is one of those musical pieces that can played in any style (except for rap and heavy metal which are not music mad ) and it’ll sound good.

Could have been at a differnt time.  When I was in country (landed during the TET offensive) House was what everyone played., don’t remember “What are we Fighting For” at all.  I can still spot the Viet Nam Vets at the local Churches of the Corner Bar whenever House is played,
