Intro: A#  A#

       A#           A#
As the snow flies
     Dm
On a cold and gray chicago mornin'
  D#               F
A poor little baby child is born
       A#       A#
In the ghetto
        A#          A#
And his mama cries
         Dm
Cause if theres one thing that she don't need
       D#           F
It's another hungry mouth to feed
       A#      A#
In the ghetto

                 F
People, dont you understand
                  D#      A#
The child needs a helping hand
   D#                  F                    A#
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
A#              F
Take a look at you and me,
           D#        A#
Are we too blind to see,
D#            Dm
Do we simply turn our heads
    D#              F
And look the other way

         A#           A#
Well the world turns
      Dm
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
D#                          F
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
       A#       A#
In the ghetto
        A#            A#
And his hunger burns
      Dm
So he starts to roam the streets at night
       D#
And he learns how to steal
       F
And he learns how to fight
       A#       A#
In the ghetto

F
Then one night in desperation
    D#              A#
A young man breaks away
   D#          Dm
He buys a gun, steals a car,
D#                   F
Tries to run, but he don't get far
        A#          A#
And his mama cries

      Dm
As a crowd gathers round an angry young man
     D#                        F
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
        A#      A#
In the ghetto
     A#               A#
As her young man dies,
     Dm
On a cold and gray chicago mornin',
   D#               F
Another little baby child is born
       A#      A#
In the ghetto
        A#         A#
And his mama cries
