Two very slightly different lyrics 

I'm goin' down to New Orleans
Baby behind the Risin' Sun
Goin' down to New Orleans
Baby behind the Risin' Sun
Lord, i just found out
My troubles had just begun.

[Went | I went] to see that gypsy woman
Have my fortune told
Went to see that gypsy woman
Have my fortune told, have my fortune told
She said ''You good boy, Bobby
Man, you just got a bad luck soul.''

I got a 32 special
Built on a cross o' wood
[Got | You got] a 32 special
Built on a cross o' wood
I got a 38-20
Boy, [it's | that's] twice as good.

I'm goin' down to New Orleans
Mama with my head in my hand
Goin' down to New Orleans
Mama with my head in my hand
I hate to leave you
But you just don't understand.

I'm goin' down to New Orleans
Baby behind the Risin' Sun
I'm goin' down to New Orleans
Baby behind the Risin' Sun
Well, i just found out
My troubles had just begun.  up
