     C* = the little tabbed part.
             
             C*
      As the snow flies
           G
      On a cold and gray Chicago morning 
        F                G 
      A poor little baby child is born 
             C* 
      In the Ghetto 

              C*
      And his mama cries 
               G       
      Cause if there's one thing that she don't need
            F            G
      Its another hungry mouth to feed 
             C*
      In the ghetto

                       G
      People don't you understand
                          F      C
      This child needs a helping hand
         F             G                     C
      Or he'll grow to be an angry young man someday
                     G
      Take a look at you and me
                 F        C
      Are we too blind to see
      F            G                  C              G    
      Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way?

               C*
      Well the world turns
            G
      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
            G
      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           G
      He buys a gun, Steals a car
       F                   G
      Tries to run, but he don't get far

              C*
      And his mama cries
           G
      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*
      As her young man dies 
           G
      On a cold and gray Chicago morning 
       F                   G
      Another little baby child is born 
             C*
      In the ghetto

             C*
      And his mama cries.  (fade out)


    Cheers.
