In the Ghetto was a come back hit for Elvis, in 1969 and, was written by Mac Davis, the song tells the story of a young baby growing up in the ghetto and, eventually dying in the Ghetto, a very sad, but real song, it also talks about how fortunate people, should not just turn their head and, look away, they should try to help people, who don't have a way to help themselves or were born in to very bad situations, also a happy late birthday to the king of rock n roll, his birthday was I think the 8th. Verified some information at Wikipedia.

While I was growing up , i heard some of Elvis Presley's songs because my father has long playing album of his song . I like it that mostly are of upbeat tune . I can't remember if I have heard that song though . You are so young still , so I suppose you haven't heard his songs of long ago ?

Just a classic song. Did you see the South Park where they were going to Kenny's house and Cartman started singing this as soon as they got to Kenny's neighborhood? It was hilarious.

Elvis is one of my favorites and I love most of his songs. I do prefer his earlier ones such as "Are You Lonesome Tonight" and my favorite "Don't."

Lisa Marie did a remake of it and they had her dad voiced in. It was really good. I've been to Graceland twice.
