Jerry Reed – East Bound And Down lyrics
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
We're gonna do what they say can't be done.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch ol' "Bandit" run.
Keep your foot hard on the pedal. Son, never mind them brakes.
Let it all hang out 'cause we got a run to make.
The boys are thirsty in Atlanta and there's beer in Texarcana.
And we'll bring it back no matter what it takes.
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
We're gonna do what they say can't be done.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch ol' "Bandit" run.
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
We're gonna do what they say can't be done.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch ol' "Bandit" run.
Ol' Smokey's got them ears on and he's hot on your trail.
He aint gonna rest 'til you're in jail.
So you got to dodge 'im and you got to duck 'im,
You got to keep that diesel truckin'.
Just put that hammer down and give it hell.
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
We're gonna do what they say can't be done.
We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
I'm east bound, just watch ol' "Bandit" run.

    Keep your foot hard on the peddle. Son, never mind them brakes Let it all hang out cause we've got a run to make The boys are thirsty in Atlanta, and there's beer in Texarcana And we'll bring it back no matter what it takes And he ain't gonna rest 'till you're in jail So you gotta dodge him. You gotta duck him You've gotta keep that diesel truckin. Just put that hammer down and give it hell.

    "Texarkana" is misspelled. In 1980 Jerry Reed appeared in a commercial favoring the law of registering for the draft. This is a law that Jimmy Carter signed. Jerry Reed supporting this legislation caused me to hate his guts. On May 4, 1970 four students were massacred by National Guard soldiers for protesting against the unconstitutional involvement of the United States of America in the Vietnam War. Was Jerry Reed fighting in those jungles?
