GHETTO – India Arie
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kengus

This is pretty straightforward as I see it. Only thing that deserves some
attention is the F; it could be some Fmaj as well, or played 103211 as I
play it. Try it out.

Standard tuning
Capo on first fret!

Barrio-o-o-o, might as well be another country
         A        C   Dm            E7             Am
When you look around, you live in another country too
