The House of the Rising Sun" is a traditional folk song, sometimes called "Rising Sun Blues". It tells of a life gone wrong in New Orleans; many versions also urge a sibling or parents and children to avoid the same fate.

Strange Fruit" is a song performed most famously by Billie Holiday, who first sang and recorded it in 1939. Written by teacher Abel Meeropol as a poem and published in 1937, it protested American racism, particularly the lynching of African Americans. Such lynchings had reached a peak in the South at the turn of the century, but continued there and in other regions of the United States. The great majority of victims were black.

There is a house in Charming Town They call the Rising Sun It's been the ruin of many a poor girl And me, Oh God, I'm one. If I listened to my mama Lord I'd be home today But I was young and foolish Handsome rider led me astray. Go tell my baby sister Never do what I've done To shun the house in Charming Town They call the Rising Sun. My Mother, she's a tailor She sewed my new blue jeans My sweetheart he's a rambler Lord he rides an old machine .
