Intro:   C  F   C   F
C                      F C
As the snow flies.

      Cmaj7                         Dm                 G
On a cold and grey Chicago morn'   another liitle baby child is born

       C             F C      F C
In the ghetto

C                          F C
And his mother cries  ( in the ghetto )

          Cmaj&                                       Dm
'Cause if there's one thing that she don't need, it's another little hungry

G                        C           F C
mouth to feed      In the ghetto

                     G                               F       C
Now people don't you understand   The child needs a helping hand

        F                 G                     C
Or he'll grow up to be  an angry young man some day

               G                       Dm      C
Take a look at you and me   Are we too blind to see

   F            Cmaj7                    Dm             G
Or do we just   turn our heads   and look the other way

      C              F C
as the world turns

      Cmaj7                                  Dm           .
and a hungry little child with a runny nose  plays in the streets

      G                          C                 F  C
as the cold wind blows    And his hunger burns

      Cmaj7                                          Dm
So he starts to roam the streets at night and he learns how to steal

       G                              C         F C    F C
and he learns how to fight    In the ghetto

    G                              Dm                 C
And then one night in desperation   A young man breaks away

   F           Cmaj7           Dm                  G
He buys a gun   steals a car   tries to run  but he don't get far

       C                    F C
and his mother cries

    Cmaj7                                         Dm
As a crowd gathers 'round   an angry young man    face down in the street

      G
with a gun in his hand

               C           F C
as her young man dies

      Cmaj7                         Dm                 G
on a cold and grey Chicago morn'   another little baby child is born

      C           F C
In the ghetto

                       F C
And his mama cries
