In The Ghetto

Mac Davis / Elvis Presley (1969)

C C C4 C C4 C Em
As the snow flies On a cold and gray chicago mornin'
F G C C C4 C C4 C
A poor little baby child is born - In the ghetto
 
C C C4 C C4 C Em
And his mama cries 'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
F G C C C4 C C4 C
Is another hungry mouth to feed - In the ghetto
 
C G F C
People, don't you understand - The child needs a helping hand
F G C
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
G F C
Take a look at you and me, Are we too blind to see,
F G C
Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way
 
C C C4 C C4 C Em
Well the world turns And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
F G C C C4 C C4 C
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows - In the ghetto
 
C C C4 C C4 C Em
And his hunger burns So he starts to roam the streets at night
F G C C C4 C C4 C
And he learns how to steal And he learns how to fight - In the ghetto
 
G F C
Then one night in desperation A young man breaks away.
F G C G
He buys a gun, steals a car, He tries to run, but he don't get far
 
C C C4 C C4 C Em
And his mama cries As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
F G C C C4 C C4 C
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand - In the ghetto
 
C C C4 C C4 C Em
As her young man dies, On a cold and gray chicago mornin',
F G C C C4 C C4 C
Another little baby child is born - In the ghetto
C C C4 C C4 C
And his mama cries
