Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – In The Ghetto chords

AAs the snow flies
C#m7On a cold and grey Chicago morning
D E7 AA poor little baby child is born in the ghetto
AAnd his mamma cries
C#m7'Cos if there's one thing that she don't need
D E7 AIt is another hungry mouth to feed in the ghetto
EPeople dont you understand
D AThe child needs a helping hand
D E Ahe's gonna grow to be an angry young man some day
ETake a look at you and me
D AAre we too blind to see
D C#m Bm E7Or do we simply turn our heads and look the other way
and 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
E D AThen one night in desperation the young man breaks away
D C#m7He buys a gun, he steals a car,
Bm E7He tries to run but he don't 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
