In The Ghetto Tab

   
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			 In The Ghetto - Presley Elvis
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


When I wrote this tab I tuned my guitar up ˝ step so the song is in A# but the 
tab in A. There is actually no guitar in some parts of the song so I didn't 
tab those parts (I still wrote down the chords). I recommend you just play 
those chords similarly to the 'C#m, D and E part' showed below or if you're in 
a band consider just don't playing them.

I don't have perfect hearing so there are probably mistakes in this tab but 
hopefully just minor ones. I also don't speak perfect english.

This is the A/Asus4 part. Just play this every time you read 'A/Asus4'.

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/elvis_presley/in_the_ghetto_tab.html ]
A/Asus4 (2x)
           As the snow flies,
     C#m
on a cold and grey Chicago mornin'
  D                E
a poor little baby child is born
       A/Asus4 (x2)
in the ghetto.

And his mama cries,
          C#m
'Cause if there's one thing that she don't need
      D             E
it's another hungry mouth to feed
       A/Asus4
in the ghetto.
                     E 
Ah, people don't you understand?
                  D       A
The child needs a helping hand,
   D                   E or E7?              A
or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day.
                   E
Ah, take a look at you and me,
          D        A
are we to blind to see?
D            C#m
Do we simply turn our head
    Bm             E
and look the other way?
          A/Asus4
Well, the world turns.
      C#m
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
D                         E
playes in the street as a cold wind blowes
       A/Asus4 (2x)
in the ghetto.

And his hunger burns,
      C#m
so he starts to roam the streets 
       D                          E
and he learns how to steal and he learns how to fight
       A/Asus4
in the ghetto.
E
Then one night in desperation
D                    A
the young man breaks away.
   D           C#m
He buys a gun, steals a car,
Bm                   E
tries to run, but he don't get far,
        A/Asus4
and his moma cries.
     C#m
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man,
     D                         E
face down in the street with a gun in his hand,
       A/Asus4 (2x)
in the ghetto.

And as her young man dies,
   C#m
on cold and grey Chicago mornin',
D                   E
another little baby child is born
       A/Asus4 (7x)
in the ghetto.

And his moma cries...
