C C7 F

[Verse 1]
           F            Am
When I was seventeen, I ran 
away from home
         Gm          C
And from everything, I had ever known
      Am             Dm
I was sick and tired living in a town
Dm                           Gm     C
Filled with narrow minds and hate
              F              Am
They used to laugh at me and children 
called me names
        Gm           C
I would run and hide feeling 
so ashamed
         Am          
Just for being born, 
Dm
I was just a boy
Dm                   
Punished for a crime 
     Bb      A7
that was not mine

[Chorus]
Dm            C
Life ain't so easy
              Bb     C
When you're a ghetto child
         Dm            C
Oh babe, life ain't so easy
              Bb     A7
When you're a ghetto child

Dm              Gm
No one tried to understand
Dm           Gm               C  
Papa did the best a man could do
C  Am  C

[Verse 2]
            F        Am
A child's reality is paid for 
by his folks
       Gm             C
Fancy fairy tales are bought 
and sold by those
        Am          Dm
Who can well afford time 
to make believe
Dm                          
Childhood dreams, can still 
     Gm       C
come true  Ah ha ha ha
             F          
So I've been wondering, 
Am
traveling all around
         Gm                C
Guess it ain't my style to live 
in just one town
           Am         Dm
Still I'll never know why 
a child is blamed
Dm                    
Ridiculed and shamed, 
      Bb      A7
we're all the same
