In the Ghetto

Elvis Presley
Intro:   A  D   A   D

A                    D A
As the snow flies.
Amaj7                 
On a cold and grey Chicago morn'
Bm                 E
another little baby child is born
A             D A      D A
In the ghetto

A                          D A
And his mother cries  ( in the ghetto )
Amaj7                                    
'Cause if there's one thing that she don't need,
Bm                    E              
It's another little hungry mouth to feed    
A           D A
In the ghetto

E           
Now people don't you understand
D       A
The child needs a helping hand
D                 E                     A
Or he'll grow up to be  an angry young man some day
E                       Bm      A
Take a look at you and me   Are we too blind to see
D            Amaj7                    Bm             E
Or do we just   turn our heads   and look the other way
A              D A
As the world turns

Amaj7                              
And a hungry little child with a runny nose
Bm
plays in the streets
E                          A                 D  A
As the cold wind blows    And his hunger burns
Amaj7                            
So he starts to roam the streets at night
Bm
and he learns how to steal
E                    
And he learns how to fight
A         D A    D A
In the ghetto

E                              
And then one night in desperation
Bm                A
A young man breaks away
D           Amaj7          
He buys a gun   steals a car
Bm                  E
tries to run  but he don't get far
A                    D A
And his mother cries

Amaj7            
As a crowd gathers 'round
Bm
an angry young man    face down in the street
E                                     A       D A
With a gun in his hand    As her young man dies

Amaj7                      
An a cold and grey Chicago morn'
Bm                 E
another little baby child is born
A           D A                        D A
In the ghetto           And his mama cries
