Further On (Up the Road)

Bruce Springsteen

 EmG
Where the road is dark, and the seed is sowed,
 EmG
Where the gun is cocked, and the bullet's cold,
 EmDEmD
Where the miles are marked  in blood and gold,    
 CDEm
I'll meet you further on, up the road,

 EmG
Got on my dead man's suit, and my smilin' skull ring,
 EmG
My lucky graveyard boots, and a song to sing
 EmDEmD
I got a song to sing,    to keep me out of the cold     
 CDEm
And I'll meet you further on, up the road,

 DEm
Further on up the road, further on up the road,
 EmG
Where the way is dark and the night is cold,
 EmDEmD
One sunny mornin'  we'll rise I know,  
 CDEm
And I'll meet you further on, up the road,

Guitar solo over: Em G x2 Em D x2 C D Em (basically the verse)

 EmG
Now I been out in the desert, just doin' my time,
 EmG
Searchin through the dust, lookin' for a sign,
 DEm
If there's a light up ahead, well brother I don't know,
 EmB
But I got this fever, burnin' in my soul,
 EmDEmD
So let's take the good times,   as they go,    
 CDEm
And I'll meet you further on, up the road,

 GEm
Further on up the road, further on up the road,
 GEm
Further on up the road, further on up the road,
 EmDEmD
One sunny mornin'  we'll rise I know,  
 CDEm
And I'll meet you further on, up the road,
 EmDEmD
One sunny mornin'  we'll rise I know,  
 CDEm
And I'll meet you further on, up the road,

Or if you don't want to use/don't have a capo and still wanna be in tune with the E street band:
