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 ]
