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: Csus4

Try it and have fun!!!


[Intro] 

C  Csus4


       C       Csus4
As the snow flies
        Em
On a cold and grey chicago mornin'
  F                G
A poor little baby child is born
        C       Csus4
In the ghetto


        C          Csus4
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


       C       Csus4
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       Csus4
In the ghetto


      C       Csus4
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 don't get far


      C       Csus4
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       Csus4
And as her young man dies,
Em
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
F                   G
Another little baby child is born
C
In the ghetto

      C       Csus4
And his mama cries
Em
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
F                   G
Another little baby child is born
C
In the ghetto

Em
On a cold and grey chicago mornin'
 F                    G
Another little baby child is born
C
In the ghetto
Em
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
F                     G
Another little baby child is born
C
In the ghetto
