🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’A-we gonna do what they say can’t be doneWe’ve got a long way to go, and a short time to get thereI’m east bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run
Keep your foot hard on the pedalSon, never mind them brakesLet it all hang out ’cause we got a run to makeThe boys are thirsty in AtlantaAnd there’s beer in TexarkanaAnd we’ll bring it back no matter what it takes
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’A-we gonna do what they say can’t be doneWe’ve got a long way to go, and a short time to get thereI’m east bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’A-we gonna do what they say can’t be doneWe’ve got a long way to go, and a short time to get thereI’m east bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run
Ol’ Smokey’s got them ears onHe’s hot on your trailAnd he aint gonna rest ’til you’re in jailSo you got to dodge ‘im and you got to duck ‘imYou got to keep that diesel truckin’Just put that hammer down and give it hell
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’A-we gonna do what they say can’t be doneWe’ve got a long way to go, and a short time to get thereI’m east bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run
