ROME, June 19 (Xinhua) -- A local runoff election was underway in Italy on Sunday, as citizens were to choose the next mayors in 126 municipalities across the country.

Polls opened at 7 a.m., and would close at 11 p.m. local time, and some 8.6 million Italians were eligible to cast their ballot.

The turnout was around 15 percent at midday, according to the Interior Ministry.

This second round of voting was being held in the municipalities where none of the candidates has been able to exceed 50 percent of the vote in the first round held on June 5.

The major cities in the country were all involved in the runoffs: namely the capital Rome, Milan, Turin, and Bologna in the north, and Naples in the south.

All of these six large cities, but Naples, have been run by Prime Minister Matteo Renzi's center-left Democratic Party (PD) in latest years.

Considering the results of the first round, the PD candidates running for mayor have already lost in Naples, and were facing a tough competition in at least two others: Rome and Milan.

Indeed, all eyes were on these two crucial cities on Sunday, since a setback there would be a signal of weakness for the ruling PD party, and might thus reverberate at national level.

In the Italian capital, candidate of anti-establishment, Eurosceptic Five Star Movement (M5S) Virginia Raggi was comfortably leading the race against PD rival Roberto Giachetti.

Raggi took 35.26 percent in the first round, and Giachetti took 24.91 percent.

The ten-percentage-point gap between the two runners was seen as very difficult to fill for the PD contender, who had been openly backed by Renzi in the campaign.

The center-left party has been ruling over the capital city for the last 22 years, but during a four-year-long center-right administration, was seemingly paying the price of a wide popular discontent.

Roman citizens showed their frustration for a recent mafia-related scandal involving local officials, and for lasting inefficiencies in public services, especially transport, rubbish, and housing.

In case of a M5S victory, Rome would have its first female mayor ever, and the loss would represent a serious blow for the PD and, possibly, for Renzi's cabinet.

Another key runoff was being held in Milan, Italy's economic and financial capital, where the mayoral race was even tighter, and the result more uncertain, than in Rome.

The two major contenders here were very close to each other. PD candidate Giuseppe Sala, chief of 2015 Milan Expo, took 41.69 percent in the first round, and center-right rival Stefano Parisi took 40.77 percent.

PD candidates were leading in the runoffs in Turin and Bologna.

Some years back the classic song Derek Carr Raiders Jersey , House Of The Rising Sun was included on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time at number 122. This is a song with a unique fascination for music lovers of our time and being able to pick up a guitar and play The House Of The Rising Sun will guarantee you will be the center of attention at any social gathering whether it be the office party, a high school dance or a get together at your favorite penitentiary. The song was first recorded by a sixteen-year-old girl called Georgia Turner who later became a professional folksinger. It was recorded by many artists including Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly but it was an English rock group, as usual, who showed the world how to interpret an American folksong.

During the sixties and seventies there was a whole new wave of electric bands singing folksongs but Eric Burdon And The Animals with House Of The Rising Sun are credited with starting the trend. The guitar chords for House Of The Rising Sun are quite easy to play, so in a matter of minutes you will be able to start working in your own personal arrangement of this iconic song. The key to the sound of the song is the A minor chord played as an arpeggio. Here is a simplified version:

E -------------------------------
B ------------------1------------
G -------------2--------2---------
D ---------2----------------2-----
A --0-----------------------------
E --------------------------------

You will be able to duplicate the Animals' guitarist, Hilton Valentine's strumming with a little practice and you will easily see how he fits a couple of extra notes in. There are more detailed tab versions on the internet and video clips of The Animals playing the song on TV. So here are the lyrics with the guitar chords shown on the first verse:

Am C D F
There is a house in New Orleans
Am C E E
They call the Rising Sun
Am C D F
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
Am E Am
And God I know I'm one


My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one
