C* = the little tabbed part.
C*
As the snow flies
On a [G]cold and gray Chicago morning
A [F]poor little baby [G]child is born
C*
In the Ghetto
C*
And his mama cries
Cause if [G]there's one thing that she don't need
Its an[F]other hungry [G]mouth to feed
C*
In the ghetto
People don't you [G]understand
This child needs a h[F]elping [C]hand
Or [F]he'll grow to [G]be an angry young man [C]someday
Take a look at [G]you and me
Are we too [F]blind to [C]see
[F]Do we simply [G]turn our heads and [C]look the other [G]way?
C*
Well the world turns
And a [G]hungry little boy with a runny nose
[F]Plays in the street as the [G]cold wind blows
C*
In the ghetto
C*
And his hunger burns
So he [G]starts to roam the streets at night
And he [F]learns how to steal
And he [G]learns how to fight
C*
In the ghetto
[G]Then one night in desperation
A [F]young man breaks [C]away
He [F]buys a gun, [G]Steals a car
T[F]ries to run, but he [G]don't get far
C*
And his mama cries
As a [G]crowd gathers round an angry young man
face [F]down on the street with a [G]gun in his hand
C*
In the Ghetto
C*
As her young man dies
On a [G]cold and gray Chicago morning
A[F]nother little baby c[G]hild is born
C*
In the ghetto
C*
And his mama cries. (fade out)
Cheers.
