Skywatch Friday: Up On The Roof

I'd rather see a little bit of peaceful country sky than a part of the skyline of L.A. but that's just me!

Our neighbors have a lovely view from up high. Their eastern view is quite stunning. Sometimes you'll see a thin marine layer and up above, some pretty blue sky. I am enjoying the last of these summer days before we head into Fall. I hope your summer has been full of wonderful fabulous memories. For more wonderful sky view shots, visit:

The song, Up On The Roof was written by the New Yorkers but performed by the Drifters in 1962. It was very popular and still is with many. I like James Taylor's soothing version of the song.

GEm
                When this old world starts getting me down
CDG
                And people are just too much for me to face
Em
                I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs
CDG
                And all my cares just drift right into space

C
                On the roof it's peaceful as can be
GEmCD
                And there the world below don't bother me  

GEm
                So when I come home feelin' tired and beat
CDG
                I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet
Em
                I'll get away from the hustling crowd
CDG
                And all that rat-race noise down in the street

C
                On the roof that's the only place I know
GEmCD
                Where you just have to wish to make it so  

GEm
                When this old world starts getting me down
CDG
                And people are just too much for me to face
Em
                I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs
CDG
                And all my cares just drift right into space

C
                At night the stars put on a show for free
GEmCD
                And darling you can share it all with me  

I keep on telling you that
GEm
                Right smack dab in the middle of town
CDG
                I've found a paradise that's trouble proof
GEm
                And if this old world starts getting you down
CDGEm
                There's room enough for two up on the roof

"The clean, unbroken surface of the west wall belies the complexity of its construction. What looks to be a smooth skin of uniformly thick tongue-and-groove red cedar siding is just the visible layer of a multi-layered sheath, whose composition in the curved wall is different from that in the straight walls."
