Dolly Parton
C
As the snow flies 
 
     Em
On a cold and gray Chicago morn

  F                G7                   C
A poor little baby child is born in the ghetto 
  
                               
And his momma cries
 
      Em
Cause if there's one thing that she don't need

     F                     G7                   C
It's another little hungry mouth to feed in the ghetto


                 G7                         F         C
People can't you understand the child needs a helping hand

F                   G7                  C
He'll grow to be an angry young man someday

               G7                F            C
Take a look at you and me are we too blind to see

F            Em                 Dm             G7
Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way 

          C
While the world turns 
 

  Em
A hungry little boy with a running nose

F                           G7                     C
Plays in the streets as the cold wind blows in the ghetto 

        
And his hunger burns
 
      Em
So he starts to roam the streets at night

       F                          G7                         C
And he learns how to steal and he learns how to fight in the ghetto


    G7                                F                C
And then one night in desperation the young man breaks away

       F                 Em           Dm
And he buys a gun and he steals a car tries to run but don't get far 

        C
And his momma cries 

     Em
As a crowd gathers round an angry young man

      F                      G7                     C
Paces down the street with a gun in his hand in the ghetto 

       
And the young man dies 


     Em
On a cold and gray Chicago morn 

F                   G7                   C
Another little baby child is born in the Ghetto
