Up On The Roof Chords

Capo I(Key: Ab)
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
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
    G                 Em               C  D
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 

(up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
    C                 D                 G
And all that rat-race noise down in the street 

(up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
      G                Em              C  D
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)
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 a-tellin' you
G                      Em
Right smack dab in the middle of town
     C           D                   G
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof 

(up on the roof)
    G                    Em
And if this world starts getting you down
        C               D
There's room enough for two
          G   Em
Up on the roof (up on the roof)
          C         D
Up on the roo-oo-oof (up on the roof)
             C    D
Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)
             C    D
Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)
