Under One Roof  The Rubettes

The Rubettes
Baby I Know 1977
|A / / .E| |A / / .E|
[A]Billy ran away from his home
to find away to l[E]ive in peace
His [E7]Mama didn't give a damn about him
His Papa's on the r[A]un from the Police
When Bi[D]lly hit the city - the city hit Billy
[A]No one needs you when your down and out
Then one kind guy with the p[E]ainted eyes
Picked him [E7]up and bailed him o[A]ut
[A]Under one roof sh[E7]aring one room
Nobody cared about t[A]hem
under one roof sh[E7]aring one room
daring the world to p[A]art them
Billy found it hard to find a job to make some pay
AII day looking round
getting me down I was being turned away
And Johnny was the only one who didn't talk down
To Billy from up above and for the first time in his life
Billy found out what it felt like to be loved
Under one roof sharing one love
Nobody cared about them
under one roof sharing one love
daring the world to p[A]art them[F7]
[Bb]Somehow Billy's Papa found out all
about the style of [F]Billy's life
And it di[F7]dn't take long before he
came round and he [Bb]had a knife
He c[Eb]ut up Johnny stole all his money
He c[Bb]alled him all the names that he could find
Said he'd wait for Billy at the fac[F]tory tomorrow
And s[F7]how him what they do to Billy's kind
[Bb]Under one roof s[F7]haring one love
Now the whole world knew a[Bb]bout them
under one roof s[F7]haring one love
daring the world to p[Bb]art them[F#7]
[B]Johnny said "Billy we can run away from the worl[F#]d no more
I'm go[F#7]nna fetch my daddy
I'm gonna show the world who I'm
[B]living for and [E]if I lose my job
If I lose my life y[B]ou'll know one thing is true
He can take away any[F#]thing from me
But he w[F#7]on't take me from you"
And at five thirty dead his daddy waited at the factory
For him to come and how it did degrade
Him he cut him and he slayed him
And spat on him in front of ev'ryone
As Billy lay dying his Papa started crying
Because the parent through him he became
And all because the person who has the first to give him love
Had been a man
