As the snow flies

On a cold and gray Chicago morn

A chordA poor little baby child is born in the ghetto

And his momma cries

Cause if there's one thing that she don't need
F chordF G7 chordG7 C chordC
Is another little hungry mouth to feed in the ghetto

G7 chordG7 F chordF C chordC
People don't you understand the child needs a helping hand

Or he'll grow to be an angry young man someday
G7 chordG7 F chordF C chordC
Take a look at you and me are we too blind to see

Or do we simply turn our heads and look the other way

As the world turns

A chordA hungry little boy with a running nose
F chordF G7 chordG7 C chordC
Plays in the streets as the cold wind blows in the ghetto

And his hunger burns
Em chordEm
So he starts to roam the streets at night
F chordF G7 chordG7 C chordC
And he learns how to steal and he learns how to fight in the ghetto

G7 chordG7 F chordF C chordC
And then one night in desperation the young man breaks away
F chordF Em chordEm Dm chordDm
And he buys a gun and he steals a car tries to run but don't get far
C chordC
And his momma cries
Em chordEm
As a crowd gathers round and the angry young man
F chordF G7 chordG7 C chordC
Paces down the street with a gun in his hand in the ghetto

Em chordEm
And as the young man dies on a cold and gray Chicago morn
F chordF G7 chordG7 C chordC
Another little baby child is born in the Ghetto

And his momma cries

And his momma cries
