In the Ghetto  Elvis Presley

In the Ghetto - Elvis Presley
(Interpreted by ROCKGEBIET)
Standard guitar tuning. We arrenged the Song in C and not in the orig. key, and we play
version with Lisa Marie and Elvis.
To get the typical hammer on/pull of sound I use the open C-chord and put one finger of
fret on the thin E String. In the chords I write this as the following: C/F
Try it and have fun!!!
Intro: C, C/F
As the [C]snow fli[C/F]es
On a col[Em]d and grey chicago mornin'
A [F]poor little baby [G]child is born
In the g[C]hetto[C/F]
And his [C]mama cries[C/F]
'cause if t[Em]here's one thing that she don't need
It's a[F]nother hungry [G]mouth to feed
In the g[C]hetto
People don't you u[G]nderstand
The child needs a [F]helping [C]hand
Or [F]he'll grow to be an [G]angry young man some d[C]ay
Take a look at y[G]ou and me,
Are we too [F]blind to [C]see,
Do we [F]simply t[Em]urn our heads and [F]look the other [G]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
[G]Then one night in desperation
[F]A young man breaks a[C]way
He [F]buys a gun, s[Em]teals a car,
[F]Tries to run, but he don[G]'t get far
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
And as her young man dies,
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
