Elvis Presley – In The Ghetto Chords


Elvis Presley – In The Ghetto

[Intro]
C
 
[Verse 1]
       C
As the snow flies
     Em
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
  F                G
A poor little baby child is born
       C
In the ghetto
        C
And his mama cries
         Em
cause if there's one thing that she don't need
      F             G
It's another hungry mouth to feed
       C
In the ghetto
 
[Chorus]
                  G
People, don't you understand
                  F       C
The child needs a helping hand
   F                   G                    C
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
               G
Take a look at you and me
           F        C
Are we too blind to see
F            Em
Do we simply turn our heads
    F              G
And look the other way
 
[Verse 2]
          C
Well, the world turns
      Em
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
F                          G
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
       C
In the ghetto
        C
And his hunger burns
      Em
So he starts to roam the streets at night
       F
And he learns how to steal
       G
And he learns how to fight
       C
In the ghetto
 
[Chorus]
G
Then one night in desperation
  F                 C
A young man breaks away
   F              Em
He buys a gun, he steals a car
   F                    G
He tries to run, but he don't get far
 
[Verse 3]
        C
And his mama cries
     Em
As a crowd gathers round an angry young man
     F                         G
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
       C
In the ghetto
           C
And as her young man dies
     Em
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
 F                  G
Another little baby child is born
       C
In the ghetto
        C
And his mama cries
 
[Outro]
