Lyrics to "In The Ghetto" song by Elvis Presley: As the snow flies On a cold and gray Chicago mornin' A poor little baby child is born 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. As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man Face down on the street with a gun in his hand In the ghetto. And as her young man dies, On a cold and gray Chicago mornin', Another little baby child is born In the ghetto.
