Up On The Roof - The Drifters

Intro:
C D
Up on the roof
G Em
Up on the roof

G Em
When this old world starts getting me down
C D G G Em
And people are just too much for me to face
Up on the roof
Em
I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs
C D G G Em
And all my cares just drift right into space
Up on the roof

C
On the roof it's peaceful as can be
G Em C D
And there the world below don't bother me

[ spoken ]
Let me tell ya now

G Em
So when I come home feelin' tired and beat
C D G G Em
I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet
Up on the roof
Em
I'll get away from the hustling crowd
C D G G Em
And all that rat race noise down in the street
Up on the roof

C
On the roof that's the only place I know
G Em C D
Where you just have to wish to make it so

(Lets go up on the roof)

[Instrumental]

C
At night the stars put on a show for free
G Em C D
And darling you can share it all with me

I keep on telling you
G Em
Right smack dab in the middle of town
C D G
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof
Up on the roof
G Em
And if this old world starts getting you down
C D G Em
There's room enough for two up on the roof
Up on the roof
C D
Up on the roof
G Em
Oh come on baby
g Em
Oh come on on it
C D G
Everything is all right
