Artist: Johnny Cash
Song: Further On Up The Road
Album: American V

Capo on 5th fret or transpose +5 semitones.


Where the road is da[Em]rk, and the seed is so[G]wed,
Where the gun is c[Em]ocked, and the bullet's c[G]old,
Where the miles are m[Em]arked[D]  in blood and g[Em]old,   [D]
I'll m[C]eet you further [D]on, up the r[Em]oad,
Got on my dead man's s[Em]uit, and my smilin' skull r[G]ing,
My lucky graveyard b[Em]oots, and a song to s[G]ing
I got a song to s[Em]ing, [D]   to keep me out of the c[Em]old    [D]
And I'll m[C]eet you further [D]on, up the r[Em]oad,
Further on up the r[G]oad, further on up the ro[Em]ad,
Where the way is d[G]ark and the night is c[B]old,
One sunny m[Em]ornin'[D]  we'll rise I kn[Em]ow, [D]
And I'll m[C]eet you further [D]on, up the r[Em]oad,
Guitar solo over (basically the verse):
[Em] [G] x2
[Em] [D] x2
[C] [Em]

Now I been out in the d[Em]esert, just doin' my t[G]ime,
Searchin through the d[Em]ust, lookin' for a s[G]ign,
If there's a light up ahe[D]ad, well brother I don't kn[Em]ow,  [D]
But I go[C]t this fever, burnin'[D] in my so[Em]ul,

Further on up the r[G]oad, further on up the ro[Em]ad,
Further on up the r[G]oad, further on up the ro[B]ad,
One sunny m[Em]ornin'[D]  we'll rise I kn[Em]ow, [D]
And I'll m[C]eet you further [D]on, up the r[Em]oad.
[D] [Em] [D] [Em] ... (fade)
