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

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

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

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

Further on up the road
Further on up the road
Further on up the road
Further on up the road

One sunny mornin' we'll rise I know
And I'll meet you further on up the road
One sunny morning we'll rise I know
And I'll meet you further on up the road

    General Comment"Where the road is dark, and the seed is sowed. - Where the gun is cocked, and the bullets load. - Where the miles are marked, in the blood and gold - I'll meet you further on, up the road."

    Everybody wants to be wealthy. For some people the search for wealth becomes its' own stigma. This is clearly a song about gold fever, and how the character in the song is obsessed with finding gold in the desert. Picture him wandering the desert with his spike and hammer, chiselling away at rocks, looking for a claim. The opening stanza gives us an insight into the rest of the song, and the rest of the song follows suite.

    He doesn't know if he's ever going to find a life beyond his obsession, a happier life in the future. But he isn't looking that far ahead. Right now he's only looking for gold, his driving ambition.
