Drifters  - Up on the roof

Capo 1.


[Verse 1]

                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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 2]

                   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


[Chorus]

                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)

[Verse 3]

                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 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


[Outro]

                          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
