Under One Roof
The Rubettes
Baby I Know 1977



|A / / .E| |A / / .E|



A                                     
Billy ran away from his home 
                 E
to find away to live in peace
    E7
His Mama didn't give a damn about him
                   A
His Papa's on the run from the Police
       D
When Billy hit the city - the city hit Billy
A
No one needs you when your down and out
                            E
Then one kind guy with the painted eyes
           E7                 A
Picked him up and bailed him out



A                E7
Under one roof sharing one room
                    A
Nobody cared about them 
                 E7
under one roof sharing one room 
                     A
daring the world to part them



Billy found it hard to find a job to make some pay
AII day looking round
getting me down I was being turned away
And Johnny was the only one who didn't talk down
To Billy from up above and for the first time in his life
Billy found out what it felt like to be loved



Under one roof sharing one love
Nobody cared about them 
under one roof sharing one love 
                     A       F7
daring the world to part them


Bb
Somehow Billy's Papa found out all
                   F
about the style of Billy's life
         F7
And it didn't take long before he
                  Bb
came round and he had a knife
    Eb
He cut up Johnny stole all his money
    Bb
He called him all the names that he could find
                                   F
Said he'd wait for Billy at the factory tomorrow
     F7
And show him what they do to Billy's kind


Bb              F7
Under one roof sharing one love
                          Bb
Now the whole world knew about them
                F7
under one roof sharing one love 
                     Bb      F#7
daring the world to part them


B                                               F#
Johnny said "Billy we can run away from the world no more
      F#7
I'm gonna fetch my daddy

I'm gonna show the world who I'm
B              E
living for and if I lose my job
                   B
If I lose my life you'll know one thing is true
                    F#
He can take away anything from me
        F#7
But he won't take me from you"



And at five thirty dead his daddy waited at the factory
For him to come and how it did degrade
Him he cut him and he slayed him
And spat on him in front of ev'ryone
As Billy lay dying his Papa started crying
Because the parent through him he became
And all because the person who has the first to give him love
Had been a man
