                Elvis Presley - In The Ghetto

Standard tuning (not in same key as original song)

A* - This is a little hammer-on/pull-off using the 
little finger on the 3rd fret of the B string. I
use it to mimic the full riff which i can't play...

	A	  A*
As the snow flies
	C#m
On a cold and gray chicago mornin'
  D		   E
A poor little baby child is born
	A	A*
In the ghetto

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

Chorus
		  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		       E		   A
Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way

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

|A  A*	|A  A*	|C#m	|D   E   |A  A*	
And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

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

|A  A*	|A  A*	|C#m	|D   E   |A  A*	
And his mama cries
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

|A  A*	|A  A*	|C#m	|D   E   |A  A*	
As her young man dies,
On a cold and gray chicago mornin',
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
|A  A*	|A  A*	 (fade out)
And his mama cries
