Further on (Up the Road)

Where the road is dark and the seed is sown,
Where the gun is cocked as the bullet’s cold,
Where the miles are marked in the blood and the gold,
I’ll meet you further on up the road.

Got on my dead man’s suit and my smilin’ skull ring,
My lucky graveyard boots and a song to sing.
I got a song to sing, it keeps me out of the cold,
And I’ll meet you further on up the road

Further on up the road,
Further on up the road,
Where the way is dark and the night is cold.
One sunny morning we’ll rise, I know,
And I’ll meet you further on up the road.

Now, I’ve been out in the desert, just doin’ my time,
Searchin’ through the dust, lookin’ for a sign.
If there’s a light up ahead, well, brother, I don’t know,
But I got this fever burnin’ in my soul.

Further on up the road,
Further on up the road,
Further on up the road,
Further on up the road,
One sunny morning we’ll rise, I know,
And I’ll meet you further on up the road.
