"In The Ghetto" by Elvis Presley.

OK, more Kingdom: This '69 Mac Davis composition was originally titled "The Vicious Circle" and it was Elvis' first recording to carry a socially-conscious message. Tackling generational poverty, it signaled a major comeback for The King with his 1st Top 10 hit in 4 years, peaking at #3. It also marked the 1st time he recorded in Memphis since '56. Lisa Marie Presley recorded a virtual duet with her father in 2007 - it topped iTunes sales and part of the proceeds went to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Yesterday's answer: "You Are My Sunshine". It is one of Louisiana's state songs. Davis used to it singing during campaign rallies while riding on his horse "Sunshine".​ch?v=gX_uKoWFs88​ch?v=Pj0GPTEU198​ch?v=1ivZD68IHmg​ch?v=Rfyac3FwVds​ch?v=a8o4os6Um6g
