In the Ghetto  Elvis Presley

There are still some versions of the song, but all of them are in the wrong key,
so this is the one to play along the CD.
Intro: A# A#
As the [A#]snow flies[A#]
On a [Dm]cold and gray chicago mornin'
A [D#]poor little baby [F]child is born
In the [A#]ghetto[A#]
And his [A#]mama cries[A#]
Cause if [Dm]theres one thing that she don't need
It's an[D#]other hungry [F]mouth to feed
In the [A#]ghetto[A#]
People, dont you [F]understand
The child needs a [D#]helping [A#]hand
Or [D#]he'll grow to be an [F]angry young man some [A#]day
[A#]Take a look at y[F]ou and me,
Are we too [D#]blind to s[A#]ee,
[D#]Do we simply t[Dm]urn our heads
And [D#]look the other w[F]ay
Well the [A#]world turns[A#]
And a [Dm]hungry little boy with a runny nose
[D#]Plays in the street as the c[F]old wind blows
In the [A#]ghetto[A#]
And his [A#]hunger burns[A#]
So he [Dm]starts to roam the streets at night
And he [D#]learns how to steal
And he [F]learns how to fight
In the [A#]ghetto[A#]
[F]Then one night in desperation
A yo[D#]ung man breaks a[A#]way
He [D#]buys a gun, [Dm]steals a car,
[D#]Tries to run, but he [F]don't get far
And his [A#]mama cries[A#]
As a c[Dm]rowd gathers round an angry young man
Face [D#]down on the street with a [F]gun in his hand
In the g[A#]hetto[A#]
As he[A#]r young man dies,[A#]
On a [Dm]cold and gray chicago mornin',
Ano[D#]ther little baby [F]child is born
In the [A#]ghetto[A#]
And his [A#]mama cries[A#]
Outro: A#
