up on the roof James Taylor
up on the roof James Taylor When this old world starts a getting me down, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] And people are just too much for me to face, [ Em7 G/a (D A/d D G/d A] I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] And all my cares just drift right into space. [ Em7 G/a (D A/d D G/a A D] On the roof, it's peaceful as can be, [ G A G/b A Em7 (D/f# G6 A7] And there the world below don't bother me, no, no. [D A/d Bm7 F#m7 Em7 G/a] So when I come home feeling tired and beat, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet, [ Em7 G/a (D A/d D G/d A) ] I'll get far away from the hustling crowd, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] And all the rat race noise down in the street. [ Em7 G/a (D A/d D G/a A D) ] On the roof, that's the only place I know, [ G A G/b A Em7 (D/f# G6 A7) ] Where you just have to wish to make it so. [ D A/d Bm7 F#m7 Em7] Let's go up on the roof. [ tacet ] [ D A/d D A/b Bm7 A/b Bm7 Em7 D/f# G A7 D A/d D G/a A D ] At night the stars put on a show for free [ G A G/b A Em7 (D/f# G6 A7) ] And, darling, you can share it all with me. [ D A/d Bm7 F#m7 Em7 ] That's what I said. Keep on telling you that [ G/a ] right smack dab in the middle of town, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] I found a paradise that's trouble proof. [ Em7 G/a D (A/d D G/d A) ] And if this old world starts a getting you down, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] There's room enough for two up on the roof. [ Em7 G/a ] [ D A/d D A/b Bm7 A/b Bm7 Em7 D/f# G A D ] Back to index / t / taylor_jam A x Normal Lyrics Chords Tabs ChordPro x Small Medium Large x Start Pause 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 variations - click chord images
