In The Ghetto Tab
Title: In the Ghetto
Artist: Elvis Presley
by Maxo3

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 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 there's one thing that she dont need
        D#            F                    Riff 1
It is another hungry mouth to feed in the ghetto

People dont you understand
                  D#      Bb
The child needs a helping hand
    D#               F                Bb
Or he'll gonna be an angry young man some day

Take a look at you and me
            D#      Bb
Are we too blind to see
   D#           Dm                  Cm
Or do we simply turn our heads and look 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...

About the artist behind In The Ghetto Tab:

Elvis Aaron Presley[1][2] (January 8, 1935–August 16, 1977), sometimes written Aron,a was an American singer, musician and actor. He is considered a cultural icon, sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll", or simply "The King".

Presley began his career as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing "black" and "white" sounds, made him popular—and controversial—as did his uninhibited stage and television performances. He recorded songs in the rock and roll genre, with tracks like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" later embodying the style. Presley had a versatile voice and had unusually wide success encompassing other genres, including gospel, blues, ballads and pop. To date, he has been inducted into four music halls of fame.

In the 1960s, Presley made the majority of his thirty-one movies—mainly poorly reviewed, but financially successful, musicals. In 1968, he returned with acclaim to live music in a television special, and thereafter performed across the U.S., notably in Las Vegas. Throughout his career, he set records for concert attendance, television ratings and recordings sales. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of popular music. Health problems plagued Presley in later life which, coupled with a punishing tour schedule and addiction to prescription medication, led to his premature death at age 42.
