Up On The Roof Chords
The Drifters  (Carole King) 

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

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

Let me tell you now

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

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

Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)

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 a-tellin' 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 world starts getting you down
        C               D
There's room enough for two
          G   Em
Up on the roof (up on the roof)
          C         D
Up on the roo-oo-oof (up on the roof)
             C    D
Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)
             C    D
Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)

Keep up the good work, mate. All your
tabs are "Five Star!!!" KK.

For me it just sounds better to play an Am chord instead of the D in the verses. Just my preference.
