In The Ghetto

Year: 1969 - Album: From Elvis in Memphis

(Davis)

	  Intro:   A  D   A   D 

A                    D A 
As the snow flies.     
       C#m7                            F                 G          
On a cold and grey Chicago mornin'   a poor little baby child is born 
       A             D A      D A 
In the ghetto 
A                        D A 
And his mama cries  ( in the ghetto ) 
          C#m7                                         
'Cause if there's one thing that she don't need,  
     F             G                          A           D A 
It's another hungry mouth to feed        In the ghetto 
                 E                               D       A 
People don't you understand   The child needs a helping hand 
        D                 E                     A 
Or he'll grow up to be  an angry young man some day 
               E                       D        A 
Take a look at you and me   Are we too blind to see 
D            C#m7                      Bm7        E 
Do we just   turn our heads   and look the other way 
     A              D A 
Well the world turns 

      C#m7                                   D            
And a hungry little child with a runny nose  plays in the street 
      E                         A                 D  A 
As the cold wind blows    In the ghetto And his hunger burns 
A                     D A      
And his hunger burns  
      C#m7                                         D 
So he starts to roam the streets at night and he learns how to steal 
       E                              A         D A    D A 
And he learns how to fight    In the ghetto 
E                               D                  A 
Then one night in desperation   A young man breaks away 
   D           C#m7             Bm7                  E 
He buys a gun   steals a car   tries to run  but he don't get far 
A                    D A 
And his mama cries 
    C#m7                                          D  
As a crowd gathers 'round   an angry young man    face down on the street 
      E                           A           D A 
With a gun in his hand    In the ghetto  
A                     D A     
As her young man dies 
      C#m7                           D                   E 
An a cold and grey Chicago mornin'   another little baby child is born 
      A           D A 
In the ghetto
