                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
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

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
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

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
