Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Ghetto  Elvis Presley



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