[Intro] 

(C)  (C)sus4


       (C)       (C)sus4
As the snow flies
        (Em)
On a cold and grey chicago mornin'
  (F)                (G)
A poor little baby child is born
        (C)       (C)sus4
In the ghetto


        (C)          (C)sus4
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


                  (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)                       (F)              (G)
Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way


       (C)       (C)sus4
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)       (C)sus4
In the ghetto


      (C)       (C)sus4
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


(G)
Then one night in desperation
(F)                   (C)
A young man breaks away
   (F)            (Em)
He buys a gun, steals a car,
(F)                       (G)
Tries to run, but he don't get far


      (C)       (C)sus4
And his mama cries
(Em)
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
(F)                          (G)
(F)ace down on the street with a gun in his hand
(C)
In the ghetto


      (C)       (C)sus4
And as her young man dies,
(Em)
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
(F)                   (G)
Another little baby child is born
(C)
In the ghetto

      (C)       (C)sus4
And his mama cries
(Em)
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
(F)                   (G)
Another little baby child is born
(C)
In the ghetto

(Em)
On a cold and grey chicago mornin'
 (F)                    (G)
Another little baby child is born
(C)
In the ghetto
(Em)
On a cold and grey chicago mornin',
(F)                     (G)
Another little baby child is born
(C)
In the ghetto
