Intro: A# A#sus4 A#

       A#          A# A#sus4 A#
As the snow flies


     A#                Dm
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
  D#                F
a poor little baby child is born
       A#
In the ghetto

And his mama cries
         A#                      Dm
cause if there's one thing that she don't need
      D#             F
It's another hungry mouth to feed
       A#     A# A#sus4 A#
In the ghetto


                  F
People, don't 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
               F
Take a look at you and me,
           D#        A#
Are we too blind to see,
D#            A#
Do we simply turn our heads
    D#              F
And look the other way?
         A#          A# A#sus4 A#
Well the world turns


      A#                        Dm
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
D#                          F
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
       A#
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns


      A#                  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# A#sus4 A#
In the ghetto


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


     A#
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
     D#                         F
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
       A#
In the ghetto

As her young man dies


     A#                Dm
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
 D#                  F
Another little baby child is born
       A#
In the ghetto

And his mama cries

Outro: A# A#sus4 A#
