Further On Up The Road

Lyrics: Joe Medwick Veasey, Don Robey
Music: Joe Medwick Veasey, Don Robey

Played at least once by Garcia and Saunders in 1972, with Roger Troy on vocals. The last section is from a different song: Heatbreak (It's Hurting Me) by Jon Thomas and Carlee Hoyles (thanks to Matt Schofield for pointing this out).

Further on up the road, baby you just wait and see
Further on up the road, you'll find out I was alive
Further on up the road, baby, you just wait and see

You gotta reap just what you sow; you'll find out that saying's true
Further on up the road, you'll find out I was alive
Further on up the road, baby, you just wait and see

Now you're laughing, pretty baby, someday soon you're gonna be crying
Further on up the road, you'll find out I was alive
Further on up the road, baby, you just wait and see

Further on up the road, baby you just wait and see
Further on up the road
Further on up the road, baby, you'll find out I was alive

Some day baby, someday you'll find out
Some day baby, someday you gonna find out
What you've been missing, yeah, you gonna find out

[Heartbreak (It's Hurting Me)]
I'm weak in the knees, loose in the head
My baby has done left me, I wish I was dead
Heartbreak, heartbreak
Oh heartbreak is killing me
I'm blind in the eye, I've lost my sense of touch
My baby has left me, I love her so much
Heartbreak, heartbreak
Oh heartbreak is killing me
And I say heartbreak, you're the one that's killing me
