In The Ghetto chords
Elvis Presley 1969 (Mac Davis)

Capo I

A Asus4 A

       A          A Asus4 A
As the snow flies

     A                C#m
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
  D                E
A poor little baby child is born
       A
In the ghetto

And his mama cries
         A                      C#m
cause if there's one thing that she don't need
      D             E
It's another hungry mouth to feed
       A     A Asus4 A
In the ghetto

                  E
People, don't you understand
                  D       A
The child needs a helping hand
   D                   E                    A
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
               E
Take a look at you and me,
           D        A
Are we too blind to see,
D            A
Do we simply turn our heads
    D              E
And look the other way?
         A          A Asus4 A
Well the world turns

      A                        C#m
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
D                          E
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
       A
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns

      A                  C#m
So he starts to roam the streets at night
       D
And he learns how to steal
       E
And he learns how to fight
       A     A Asus4 A
In the ghetto

E
Then one night in desperation
  D                 A
A young man breaks away
   D           A
He buys a gun, steals a car,
D                    E
Tries to run, but he don't get far
        A
And his mama cries

     A
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
     D                         E
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
       A
In the ghetto

As her young man dies

     A                C#m
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
 D                  E
Another little baby child is born
       A
In the ghetto

And his mama cries

A Asus4 A . . . .
