Up On The Roof  Drifters

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)

[] [] []

                [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]
                          [G]     [Em]    
Up on the roof
                Up on the [C]roof [D]   [G]
