EAST BOUND AND DOWN, LOADED UP AND TRUCKIN',
C                                      D
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.
        A                                  Em
LET IT ALL HANG OUT 'CAUSE WE GOT A RUN TO MAKE.
     Em                               C
THE BOYS ARE THIRSTY IN ATLANTA AND THERE'S BEER IN TEXARCANA.

JUST PUT THAT HAMMER DOWN AND GIVE IT HELL.

Correction on the words...

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.

This is the greatest song ever and i have to thank you for tabbing
it. I love the song but i'm too lazy (and untalented) to figure it
out myself.

East on "I'm east bound.." It's an F chord.
Also on "WE'RE GONNA DO WHA..." it starts on an F then a C chord
on "THEY" in the same line. F,C,D This line: "LET IT ALL HANG
OUT 'CAUSE WE GOT A RUN TO MAKE." goes A, B, Em.
Kudos for close.

Texarkana....yes, I know it's petty. Sorry.
-holymoly | 10/25/2003
I am from West Virginia so when I say it, it is West Bound and down for the first verse, afterall you have to go West before you go east.
-cfalse36 | 1/20/2004
Yeah well, no one ever said West Virginians were the coldest beers in the fridge.
-mightyjoe | 4/11/2004
Not just west virginians say west bound and down on the first verse. That's how the song goes. Watch "Smokey and the Bandit". They start out from Atlanta going west, thus west bound and down.
-lpcustom | 7/23/2004
Actually there are two versions one for going to Tex which is west bound and down and this one which is east bound and down. Jerry did them as two separate songs so good work.
-goofbaw1 | 7/24/2004
yeah, what Pnut said

-TexasBlessed | 1/24/2005
