                      Up on the roof

                Capo 1 ***
                        )
                In solo   means bend upwords


                G                          Em
		When this old world starts getting me down
		    C                   D
		And people are just too much for me to face
		     G                   Em
		I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs
                    C                 D
		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 don't bother me

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

		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)

		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 that
		G                      Em
		Right smack dab in the middle of town
		     C           D                   G
		I've found a paradise that's trouble proof
		       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
	                  C    D
		Up on the roof
			  G    Em
		Up on the roof
		          C    D  G
		Up on the roof

Think it may need a G at the end of lines 2 and 4 - other than that, great!

Great song, good tab!

But the bridge is not just "C", I think. I'd suggest:

 | C | C6 | Cmaj7 | C | 


The coda changes between G and Em, no C or D here anymore. (At least in the version I have)

The verse phrases end like this:

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