Elvis Presley never cut a more Bleeding Out - The Lone Bellow - The Lone Bellow political record than 's "In the Ghetto," an empathetic and genuinely moving portrait of the vicious circle of life and death in the nation's slums. Although the setting is urban Chicago and not rural Tupelo, MS, there's no mistaking Elvis' deep connection to the song's tale of poverty and desperation -- after all, it could have been his story had things worked out any differently.
A hauntingly lovely, dirge-like ballad rooted in gospel, "In the Ghetto" is by no means a protest song, which is no doubt why it works; as the richest and most famous of all pop icons, Elvis was more distanced from the true inner workings of American life than any of his contemporaries, yet the song's simple yet grimly poetic lyrics written by a then-unknown Mac Davis bear no trace of patronizing or pity, just wistful resignation. Accordingly, Elvis invests "In the Ghetto" with perhaps his most tender and compassionate vocal; even more than the record forces listeners to consider the world around them, it seems to reawaken something in the singer himself, taking him back to the life of hardship and hopelessness he left behind not so long ago.
