Up On The Roof:The Drifters.
#5 in '62.
              (Capo 1st fret.)
     G                     Em
When this old world starts getting me down,
    C                   D              G
And people are just too much for me to face.
I climb way up to the top of the stairs,
    C                 D                G     G7
And all my cares just drift right into space.
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be.
    G                 Em               C
And there the world below can't bother me.
Let me tell you now...

     G                   Em
When I come home feelin' tired and beat,
  C               D                G
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet. 
I get away from the hustling crowd,
    C                 D                 G     G7
And all that rat-race noise down in the street. 
On the roof's, the only place I know,
      G                Em              C
Where you just have to wish to make it so.
      D            G 
Let's go up on the roof.. 
At night the stars put on a show for free.
     G                Em                C
And, darling, you can share it all with me. 
I keep on tellin' you... 

G                      Em
Right smack dab in the middle of town,
     C           D                   G
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof.
And if this world starts getting you down,
        C               D              G
There's room enough for two, up on the roof.

Up on the roo..oo..oof.
Oh, come on, baby..up on the roof.
Oh, come on, honey..up on the roof.  
Everything is all right..up on the roof.
