Up On The Roof
Gerry Goffin & Carole King  1962

(Starting Note: C)  (Capo 3rd Fret)

Em  D/F#  G6  A7sus4
When this old world starts a getting me down, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ]
And people are just too much for me to face,  [ Em7  G/A (D  A/D  D  G/D  A)]
I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs, [ D  Bm7  F#m7 ]
And all my cares just drift right into space. [ Em7  G/A (D  A/D  D  G/A  A
 D)]
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be,  [ G  A  G/B  A  Em7  (D/F#  G6  A7)]
And there the world below don't bother me, no, no. [D  A/d  Bm7  F#m7  Em7
 G/A]

So when I come home feeling tired and beat,  [ D Bm7  F#m7 ]
I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet,  [ Em7  G/A (D  A/D  D  G/D  A)
]
I'll get far away from the hustling crowd, [ D  Bm7  F#m7 ]
And all the rat race noise down in the street. [ Em7  G/a (D  A/d  D  G/a  A
 D) ]
On the roof, that's the only place I know,  [ G  A  G/B  A  Em7  (D/F#  G6
 A7) ]
Where you just have to wish to make it so. [ D  A/d  Bm7  F#m7  Em7]

Let's go up on the roof. [ tacet ]

[ D  A/D  D  A/B  Bm7  A/B  Bm7  Em7  D/f#  G  A7  D  A/D  D  G/A  A  D ]

At night the stars put on A show for free [ G  A  G/B  A  Em7  (D/F#  G6  A7)
]
And, darling, you can share it all with me. [ D  A/d  Bm7  F#m7  Em7 ]

That's what I said. Keep on telling you that  [ G/a ]
right smack dab in the middle of town, [ D  Bm7  F#m7  ]
I found A paradise that's trouble proof. [ Em7  G/A  D (A/D  D  G/D A) ]
And if this old world starts a getting you down, [ D  Bm7  F#m7 ]
There's room enough for two up on the roof. [ Em7  G/a ]
[ D  A/D  D  A/B  Bm7  A/B  Bm7  Em7  D/f#  G  A  D ]
