Up On The Roof
Words & Music:
Gerry Goffin & Carole King
When this old world starts to getting me down
D E A
And people are just too much for me to face.
I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space.
D F#m D F#m D
On the roof it's peaceful as can be.
D A F#m D E
And there the world below don't bother me.
So, when I come home feelin' tired and beat,
I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet.
I'll get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street.
On the roof that's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so.
A F#m A F#m
Let's go up on the roof.
At night the stars put on a show for free.
And, darling, you can share it all with me.
I keep on telling you that right smack dab in the middle of town
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof.
And if this old world starts getting you down
D E A F#m
There's room enough for two up on the roof.
D E A F#m D E A
Up on the roof---, up on the roof---, up on the roof.
