In the Ghetto - Elvis Presley (Interpreted by ROCKGEBIET) Standard guitar tuning. We arrenged the Song in C and not in the orig. key, and we play version with Lisa Marie and Elvis. To get the typical hammer on/pull of sound I use the open C-chord and put one finger of fret on the thin E String. In the chords I write this as the following: C/F Try it and have fun!!! Intro: C, C/F C C/F As the snow flies Em On a cold and grey chicago mornin' F G A poor little baby child is born C C/F In the ghetto C C/F And his mama cries Em 'cause if there's one thing that she don't need F G It's another hungry mouth to feed C In the ghetto G People don't you understand F C The child needs a helping hand F G C Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day G Take a look at you and me, F C Are we too blind to see, F Em F G Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way Well the world turns And a hungry little boy with a runny nose Plays in the street as the cold wind blows In the ghetto And his hunger burns So he starts to roam the streets at night And he learns how to steal And he learns how to fight In the ghetto G Then one night in desperation F C A young man breaks away F Em He buys a gun, steals a car, F G Tries to run, but he don't get far And his mama cries As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man Face down on the street with a gun in his hand In the ghetto And as her young man dies, On a cold and grey chicago mornin', Another little baby child is born In the ghetto And his mama cries On a cold and grey chicago mornin', Another little baby child is born In the ghetto On a cold and grey chicago mornin', Another little baby child is born In the ghetto On a cold and grey chicago mornin', Another little baby child is born In the ghetto By Christoph Gröger of ROCKGEBIET www.rockgebiet.de 29.01.2008
