In the Ghetto  Elvis Presley

I wrote the chords as they are in the real song. They look
hard and ugly, but they are very simple and easy in the
way I show you.

Riff 1
As the snow flies...
On a [Dm]cold and grey Chicago morning
D# F Riff 1
A poor little baby child is born in the ghetto
Riff 1
And his mamma cries...
'Cos if t[Dm]here's one thing that she dont need
D# F Riff 1
It is another hungry mouth to feed in the ghetto
People dont you [Dm]understand
The child needs a [D#]helping [Bb]hand
Or h[D#]e'll gonna be an [F]angry young man s[Bb]ome day
Take a look at [Dm]you and me
Are we too b[D#]lind to [Bb]see
Or [D#]do we simply [Dm]turn our heads and l[Cm]ook the other way
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
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 the young man breaks away
He buys a gun, he steals a car,
He tries to run but he dont get far
And his mamma cries...
As a crowd gathers round an angry young man
Face down in the street with a gun in his hand in the ghetto
And as her young man dies...
On a cold and grey Chicago morning
Another little baby child is born in the ghetto...
