Songs "U"


Carole King

[G] When this old world starts [Em] getting me down
And [C] people are just too [D] much for me to [G] face
I [G] climb way up to the [Em] top of the stairs
And [C] all my cares just [D] drift right into [G] space
[C] On the roof it's [Am] peaceful as can [C] be [Am]
And [G] there the world be-[Em]-low can't bother [C] me [D]

Let me tell you now,
When [G] I come home feelin' [Em] tired and beat
I [C] go up where the [D] air is fresh and [G] sweet
I [G] get away from the [Em] hustling crowd
And [C] all the rat race [D] noise down in the [G] street
[C] On the roof's the [Am] only place I [C] know [Am]
Where [G] you just have to [Em] wish to make it [C] so [D]

[C] At night the stars put [Am] on a show for [C] free [Am]
And [G] darling you can [Em] share it all with [C] me [D]

I keep on tellin' you that
[G] Right smack dab in the [Em] middle of town
I [C] found a para-[D]-dise that's trouble [G] proof
And [G] if this world starts [Em] getting you down
There's [C] room enough for [D] two up on the [G] roof
[Em] Up on the roof
[G] Come on baby
