In The Ghetto

Elvis Presley

C
As the snow flies
Em
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
F
A poor little baby
G
child was born
C
In the ghetto

C
And his mama cries
Em
'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
F
it's another hungry
G
mouth to feed
C
In the ghetto
People, don't you
G
understand
the child needs a
F
helping
C
hand
or
F
he'll grow to be an
G
angry young man some
C
day
C
Take a look at
G
you and me
are we too
F
blind to
C
see
F
do we simply turn our
Em
heads
and
F
look the other
G
way
Well the
C
world turns
Em
and a hungry little boy with a runny nose
F
plays in the street as the
G
cold wind blows
C
In the ghetto

C
And his hunger burns
Em
so he starts to roam the streets at night
F
and he learns how to steal
G
and he learns how to fight
C
In the ghetto
G
Then one night in desperation
F
a young man breaks
C
away
F
He buys a gun,
Em
steals a car
F
tries to run, but he
G
don't get far
C
And his mama cries
Em
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
F
face down on the street with a
G
gun in his hand
C
In the ghetto

C
As her young man dies,
Em
on a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
F
another little baby
G
child is born
C
In the ghetto

C
And his mama cries.
