Further on (Up the Road)  Bruce Springsteen

Further On (Up The Road) - Bruce Springsteen (From The Rising)
At last! a new album from the Boss, and some cracking tunes on it, including this classic E street rocker!!
yeah I know its only the chords cos I can't do the rest - if anyone else knows it please tell me!!
Lyrics are taken straight out of the book, so if they're wrong then Bruce sang the wrong words.
Put a capo on the first fret, and play these chords
The intro is Em
Where the road is d[Em]ark, and the seed is s[G]owed,
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[D]oad, further on up the ro[Em]ad,
Where the way is d[Em]ark and the night is c[G]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: Em G x2 Em D x2 C D Em (basically the verse)
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,
But I got this f[Em]ever, burnin' in my so[B]ul,
So let's take the g[Em]ood times,[D] as they g[Em]o,[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,
Further on up the r[G]oad, further on up the ro[Em]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,
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,
Or if you don't want to use/don't have a capo and still wanna be in tune with the E street band:
