Uptown:The Crystals.
#18 on R&B and #13 on BB Hot 100
on PHILLIES Records in 1962.

INTRO:
Cm
He gets up each morning and he goes downtown,
                                                    D#
where everyone's his boss and he's lost in an angry land..
              G
he's a little man..

#1.
G                  C
But then, he comes uptown each evening to my tenement,
Am                               Em7      Am
uptown where folks don't have to pay much rent.
F                                                     Am
And when he's there with me he can see that he's everything,
          G#             Fm            C
then he's tall, he don't crawl, he's a king.

#2.
Cm
Downtown he's just one of a million guys,
                                                    D#
he don't get no breaks and he takes all they got to give..
                  G
cause he's got to live.

#3.
G                 C
But then he comes uptown where he can hold his head up high,
Am              Em7       Am
uptown he knows that I am standing by.
    F                                                     Am
And when I take his hand there's no man who could put him down.
             G#                 Fm                C
The world is sweet, it's at his feet, when he's uptown.


(INTERLUDE:)
C                   Am                           F
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh..yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah..yeah-yeah-
               G7
yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah.

#3.
G7                    C
Let me tell ya now, uptown where he can hold his head up high,
Am              Em7       Am
uptown he knows that I am standing by.
    F                                                     Am
And when I take his hand there's no man who could put him down.
             G#                 Fm                C
The world is sweet, it's at his feet, when he's uptown.

OUTRO:
C                   Am                           C
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh..yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah..
G7                     C
