Up on the Roof  The Drifters

By daniel mchugh
Up on the roof
Capo 1 ***
In solo [)] means bend upwords
[G]When this old world starts [Em]getting me down
And [C]people are just too [D]much for me to face
I'll [G]climb way up to the [Em]top of the stairs
And [C]all my cares just [D]drift right into space
[C]On the roof it's peaceful as can be
And [G]there the world be[Em]low don't bother [C]me[D]
So [G]when I come home feelin' [Em]tired and beat
I'll [C]go up where the [D]air is fresh and [G]sweet
I'll get away from the [Em]hustling crowd
And [C]all that rat-race [D]noise down in the [G]street
[C]On the roof that's the only place I know
Where [G]you just have to [Em]wish to make it [C]so[D]
(Lets go up on the roof)
[)] [)] [)]  
 Solo -----4-4-4--6--9-8-------------9-8-------------4---8vvv-------|

[C]At night the stars put on a show for free
And [G]darling you can [Em]share it all with [C]me[D]
I keep on telling you that
[G]Right smack dab in the [Em]middle of town
I've [C]found a para[D]dise that's trouble [G]proof
And if [G]this old world starts [Em]getting you down
There's [C]room enough for [D]two up on the [G]roof[Em]
Up on the [C]roof[D]
Up on the [G]roof[Em]
Up on the [C]roof[D] [G]
