I was the third brother of five

Doing whatever I had to do to survive

I'm not saying what I did was alright

Trying to break out of the ghetto was a day to day fight

Dm
Been down so long, getting up didn't cross my mind
Am
I knew there was a better way of life and I was just trying to find
Dm
You don't know what you'll do until you're put under pressure
Am
Across 110th Street is a hell of a tester


Chorus
F            G
Across 110th Street
Em                                   Am
Pimps trying to catch a woman that's weak
F            G
Across 110th Street
Em                             Am
Pushers won't let the junkie go free

F            G
Across 110th Street
Em                                   Am
Woman trying to catch a trick on the street, ooh baby

You can find it all in the street, oh

Am / EmMaj7 / G G / G G
I got one more thing I'd like to yell about right now

Dm
Hey brother, there's a better way out
Am
Snorting that coke, shooting that dope man, you're copping out
Dm
Take my advice, it's either live or die
Am                                             F Am
You've got to be strong, if you want to survive

Dm
The family on the other side of town
Am
Would catch hell without a ghetto around
Dm
In every city you find the same thing going down
Am
Harlem is the capital of every ghetto town
Dm
Help me sing it


Chorus
F            G
Across 110th Street
