FURTHER ON (UP THE ROAD)

Live 13 Jun 2006 version


[Spoken Intro:] Thank you! Yes, yes! All right, this is a work in progress, we haven't figured this one out—we're close! So why not, right? (chuckles) Arturo! Arthur is the king of, uh, the highest instrument in the band and the lowest instrument in the band, he's known as Art "High-Low" "King of the Rock and Roll Tuba" Baron, but, uh (chuckles), he plays it low, he plays it high. (giggles) Nothing in the middle! Go ahead, let's try it. Let's have fun.


Bruce Springsteen (spoken):Go 'head.

Cindy Mizelle:Further up the road, further up the road
Meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
Meet you further on up the road

Cindy Mizelle:Further up the road, further up the road
Meet you further on up the road
Where the night is dark and the night is cold
Meet you further on up the road

Bruce Springsteen:Where the road is dark and the seed is sowed
Where the gun is cocked and the bullet's cold
The miles are marked in blood and gold
I'll meet you further on up the road

Cindy Mizelle:Further up the road, further up the road
Meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the nights is cold
Bruce Springsteen (spoken):Sing that one more time!
Cindy Mizelle:Meet you further on up the road

All:Further up the road, further up the road
Meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
Meet you further on up the road

Bruce Springsteen:Got on my dead man's suit and smilin' skull ring
Graveyard boots and a song to sing
A song to sing to keep me out of the cold
I'll meet you further on up the road

All:Further up the road, further up the road
I'll meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
I'll meet you further on up the road

Bruce Springsteen:Oh my beautiful Molly, dear
The tide's rising, can't you hear?
One more kiss, darling, and I'll go
I'll meet you further on up the road

All:Further up the road, further up the road
I'll meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
I'll meet you further on up the road

Cindy Mizelle:Further up the road, further up the road
I'll meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
I'll meet you further on up the road

Bruce Springsteen:I've been out in the desert, just doing my time
Searching through the dust for a sign
If there's a light ahead, I don't know
I'll meet you further on up the road

Bruce Springsteen:If there's a light, brother, I don't know
I got the fever burning in my soul
Let's take the good times as they go
I'll meet you further on up the road

Marc Anthony Thompson:Further up the road, further up the road
I'll meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
I'll meet you further on up the road

Lisa Lowell:Further up the road, further up the road
I'll meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
Meet you further on up the road

Curtis King:Further up the road, further up the road
I'll meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
I'll meet you further on up the road

Cindy Mizelle:Further up the road, further up the road
Meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
Meet you further on up the road

Frank Bruno:Further up the road, further up the road
I'll meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is long
I'll meet you further on up the road

All:Further up the road, further up the road
I'll meet you further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
Meet you further on up the road

Bruce Springsteen (spoken):One, two!

[Spoken Outro:] Ah, we made it! Yes, yes, yes, yes. (chuckles) All right. Okay. We've totally screwed up our setlist though! (laughs)
