The Ghetto, Elvis Presley 


Intro:   A  D   A   D 
A                      D A 
As the snow flies.     

      Amaj7                         Bm                 E          
On a cold and grey Chicago morn'   and a poor liitle baby child is born 

       A             D A      D A 
In the ghetto 

A                          D A 
And his momma cries  ( in the ghetto ) 

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

E                        A           D A 
mouth to feed      In the ghetto 

                     E                               D       A 
Now 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                       Bm      A 
Take a look at you and me   Are we too blind to see 

   D            Amaj7                    Bm             E 
Or do we just   turn our heads   and look the other way 

      A              D A 
as the world turns 

      Amaj7                                  Bm           . 
and a hungry little child with a runny nose  plays in the streets 

      E                          A        D A  D A         D  A 
as the cold wind blows  in the ghetto               And his hunger burns 

      Amaj7                                          Bm      
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                              Bm                 A 
And then one night in desperation   The young man breaks away 

   D           Amaj7           Bm                  E 
He buys a gun   steals a car   tries to run  but he don't get far 

       A                    D A 
and his mother cries 

    Amaj7                                         Bm  
As a crowd gathers 'round   an angry young man    face down in the street 

      E                            A       D A  D A             
with a gun in his hand     In the ghetto

               A           D A 
as her young man dies 

      Amaj7                         Bm                 E 
on a cold and grey Chicago morn'   another little baby child is born 

      A           D A 
In the ghetto 

                       D A 
And his mama cries
