In The Ghetto

Mac Davis / Elvis Presley (1969)

G G G4 G G4 G Bm
As the snow flies On a cold and gray chicago mornin'
C D G G G4 G G4 G
A poor little baby child is born - In the ghetto
 
G G G4 G G4 G Bm
And his mama cries 'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
C D G G G4 G G4 G
Is another hungry mouth to feed - In the ghetto
 
G D C G
People, don't you understand - The child needs a helping hand
C D G
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
D C G
Take a look at you and me, Are we too blind to see,
C D G
Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way
 
G G G4 G G4 G Bm
Well the world turns And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
C D G G G4 G G4 G
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows - In the ghetto
 
G G G4 G G4 G Bm
And his hunger burns So he starts to roam the streets at night
C D G G G4 G G4 G
And he learns how to steal And he learns how to fight - In the ghetto
 
D C G
Then one night in desperation A young man breaks away.
C D G D
He buys a gun, steals a car, He tries to run, but he don't get far
 
G G G4 G G4 G Bm
And his mama cries As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
C D G G G4 G G4 G
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand - In the ghetto
 
G G G4 G G4 G Bm
As her young man dies, On a cold and gray chicago mornin',
C D G G G4 G G4 G
Another little baby child is born - In the ghetto
G G G4 G G4 G
And his mama cries
