*****NOTE* - The chord progression Boland uses in the verses is
NOT correct if you are trying to play along with the Jerry Reed
version. THIS is the way he plays it on the live CD at the Wormy Dog.****
East bound and down, loaded up and truckin'
C D D/C D/B D/A
we're gonna do what they say can't be done
G G7 C
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
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
You got 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.
We’re gonna bring it back no matter what it takes.
