FARTHER UP THE ROAD


Further on up the road, someone gonna hurt you like you hurt me
Further on up the road, someone gonna hurt you like you hurt me
Further on up the road, baby you just wait and see

You got to reap just what you sow, that old saying is true
You got to reap just what you sow, that old saying is true
Like you mistreat someone, someone's gonna mistreat you

Now you're laughing pretty baby, someday you're gonna be crying
Now you're laughing pretty baby, some, someday you're gonna be crying
Further on up the road, you'll find out I wasn't lying

Yeah, baby, further on up the road, baby, hmmm, you'll find out I wasn't lying
Further on up the road, when you're all alone and blue
Further on up the road, when you're all alone and blue
You're gonna ask me to take you back baby, but I'll have somebody new
Hmmm, baby, further on up the road
Hmmm, baby, further on up the road
Hmmm, you'll get yours
