  • (Bonnie Bramlett / Homer Banks / Betty Krutcher)

    If you ever live in a ghetto
    Maybe at the close of your day
    On your front porch you'll hear the sound of a jukebox
    From a neighbourhood cafe

    Well at noon you may hear the neighbours fussin'
    When a kid breaks a window pane
    And at night - and at night you may be wakened
    By the sound of the out- outbound train

    The rich folks they own the big city
    And they down us for living the way we do
    But when you're born the child of a poor man
    You know the ghetto is the only place for you

    Well if there's such a thing as revolution
    And there will be if we rise to the call
    When we build we build we build we build the New Jerusalem
    There won't be no more ghetto - ghetto at all

    No there won't be no more ghetto - ghetto at all

    As sung by Joan Baez
