Elvis Presley - In the Ghetto (Easy-Version)
Listened to following YT-Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ox1Tore9nw
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

C
As the snow flies
Em
On a cold and gray chicago mornin
F                  G
A poor little baby child is born
C
In the ghetto
C
And his mama cries
Em
cause if theres one thing that she dont need
F                  G
Its another hungry mouth to feed
C
In the ghetto

                 G
People, dont you understand
                  F       C
The child needs a helping hand
   F                  G                    C
Or hell grow to be an angry young man some day
C              G
Take a look at you and me,
           F        C
Are we too blind to see,
F                     Em
Do we simply turn our heads
    F              G
And look the other way

         C
Well the world turns
Em
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
F                          G
Plays in the street as the 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                  C
A young man breaks away
F              Em
He buys a gun, steals a car,
F                G
Tries to run, but he dont get far
C
And his mama cries

Em
As a crowd gathers round an angry young man
F                              G
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
C
In the ghetto

C
As her young man dies,
Em
On a cold and gray chicago mornin,
F                   G
Another little baby child is born
C
In the ghetto

Excellent, where each chord comes in is clearly defined, by far making this the easiest to learn
