Up On The Roof

Year: 2003 - Album: The Best of James Taylor

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		

Intro:  Em D/F# G6 A7sus4 

     D                       Bm         F#m7 
When this old world starts a getting me down 
    Em7                 A7sus4         D    G A 
And people are just too much for me to face 
     D                   Bm          F#m7 
I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs 
    Em7               A7sus4           D     A D 
And all my cares just drift right into space 
G      A          G/B      A      Em7  D/F# G A7sus4 
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be 
    D                 Bm        F#m7   Em7   A 
And there the world below don't bother me 
     D                   Bm         F#m7 
when I come home feeling tired and beat 
  Em7             A7sus4           D    G A 
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet 
  D                     Bm       F#m7 
I get far away from the hustling crowd 
    Em7               A7sus4            D     A D 
And all that rat race noise down in the street 
G      A               G/B   A       Em7  D/F# G A7sus4 
On the roof, that's the only place I know 
      D                Bm         F#m7 Em7   A 
Where you just have to wish to make it so,   Let's go 
          D    Em D/F# G6 A7sus4 D    Em D/F# G6 A7sus4 
up on the roof 
   G          A         G/B   A        Em7  D/F# G A7sus4 
at night the stars,  put on a show for free 
    D                 Bm        F#m7   Em7   A 
And darling, you can share it all with me 
D                      Bm        F#m7 
right smack dab in the middle of town 
     Em7         A7sus4              D     G A 
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof 
    D                          Bm          F#m7 
And if this old world starts a getting you down 
        Em7             A7sus4        D     A D 
There's room enough for two up on the roof 
D    Em D/F# G6 A7sus4
