Up On The Roof

(Song starts at 1:05)
By Gerry Goffin and Carole King
Originally performed by The Drifters
Rise Up Singing chapter: City, p.22
C Am / F - C - :// F - - - / C Am Dm G

I like to add a little fifth on the second line, to make this:
C Am / F G C - :// F - - - / C Am Dm G

And I sing it in G, which makes for this:

G Em / C D G - :// C - - - / G Em Am D

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are too much for me to take
I climb right up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
