The Band & Eric Clapton - Further On Up The Road - Live 1976 (from ''The Last Waltz'')




The Last Waltz was a concert by the Canadian-American rock group The Band, held on American Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was advertised as The Band's "farewell concert appearance", and the concert saw The Band joined by more than a dozen special guests, including their previous employers Ronnie Hawkins and Bob Dylan as well as Paul Butterfield, Bobby Charles, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, and Neil Young. The musical director for the concert was The Band's original record producer, John Simon.


A blues set was next with harmonica player Paul Butterfield, Muddy Waters, pianist Pinetop Perkins and Eric Clapton. As Clapton was taking his first solo on "Further on Up the Road", his guitar strap came loose. Clapton said "Rob!" and Robertson picked up the solo without missing a beat.





Lyrics



Further on up the road

Someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me

Further on up the road

Someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me

Further on up the road

Baby, just you wait and see


You gotta reap just what you sow

That old sayin' is true

You gotta reap just what you sow

That old sayin' is true

Just like you mistreat someone

Someone's gonna mistreat you


You've been laughin' pretty baby

Someday you're gonna be cryin'

You've been laughin' pretty baby

Someday you're gonna be cryin'

Further on up the road

You'll find out I wasn't lyin'
