Uptown

Performer: The Crystals
Capo 3

He [Am]gets up each morning and he goes downtown
Where everyone's his boss and he's lost in an angry [C]land
He's a little [E]mad  

But then, he comes [A]uptown each ev'nin' to my tenement
[F#m]Uptown where folks don't have to pay much rent
And [D]when he's there with me, he can see that he's every[F#m]thing    
Then he's [F]tall, he don't [Dm]crawl, he's a [A]king

[Am]Downtown, he's just one of a million guys
He don't get no breaks and he takes all they got to [C]give
'Cause he's got to [E]live

But then, he comes [A]uptown where he can hold his head up high
[F#m]Uptown, he knows at I'll be standing by
And [D]when I take his hand, there's no man who could put him [F#m]down    
The world is [F]sweet, it's at his [Dm]feet when he's up[A]town

[A]Whoa-oa-oa-oa-oa-oa-[F#m]oa    
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah [A]yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah [F#m]yeah    


Let me tell ya now
[A]uptown where he can hold his head up high
[F#m]Uptown, he knows that I'll be standing by
And [D]when I take his hand, there's no man who could put him [F#m]down    
The world is [F]sweet, it's at his [Dm]feet when he's up[A]town
[A]Whoa-oa-oa-oa-oa-oa-[F#m]oa    
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah [A]yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah [F#m]yeah
