Dave T Origin or title of House of the Rising Sun? (184* d) RE: Origin or title of 16 Jan 99

Along with the Leadbelly & Eric Burden versions, Doc Watson does one ("The Essential Doc Watson, Vol 1 & 2" and also on "Portrait"). The title is Risin' Sun Blues and Doc apparently learned it from Clarence Ashley. Before I heard this, I had always assumed Leadbelly wrote it. I think I have to agree with Joe that it's probably public domain.
