F#  D#m  B  C#   or   F#  D#m  B   C# (for Steven's lead part)

F#                         D#m
 When this old world starts getting me down
     B                C#                      F#
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
     B                C#                    F#
And all my cares just drift right into space

On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
     F#                 D#m             B     C#
And there the world below don't bother me

F#                         D#m
When I come home feelin' tired and beat
     B                C#                      F#
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
   B                C#                      F#
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)

On the roof, the only place I know
     F#             D#m                B   C#
Where you just have to wish to make it so

 F#                      D#m
Right smack dab in the middle of town
               B             C#                           F#
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof
And if this world starts getting you down
         B               C#
There's room enough for two
           F#       D#m
Up on the roof (up on the roof)
           B            C#
Up on the roof (up on the roof)
              B         C#
Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)
              B   C#
Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)

About the artist behind Up On The Roof Chords:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
