Chorus

Well if I can keep it on the ground when I put that hammer down
Then I'll be Texas bound and a flyin'
I've got my ten in the wind, let it all hang out again
'Cause how you gonna win if you ain't tryin'

Now we're all back together and we're burning up the road
And that ol' sheriff's out there dogging us again
He thinks he's really got cookin', plans to do a lot of bookin',
The only trouble he keeps lookin' where we've already been

So if I can keep it on the ground when I put that hammer down
Then I'll be Texas bound and a flyin'

Chorus

Well if I can keep it on the ground when I put that hammer down
Then I'll be Texas bound and a flyin'
I've got my ten in the wind, let it all hang out again
'Cause how you gonna win if you ain't tryin'

Now Smokey and the Bandit is a tale you don't forget
'Cause everytime you hear an engine scream and whine
Well you'll have to think about ol' Bandit
Ol' Buford, Frog and Fred and Snowman
Their story is a legend that will live on in time

So if I can keep it on the ground when I put that hammer down
Then I'll be Texas bound and a flyin'
