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
Hmm, 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

Hmm, baby
Further on up the road
Hmm, baby
Further on up the road
Hmm, you'll get yours
