East Bound and Down is one of the best songs ever. That’s a fact. The fast finger picking and lyrics of Jerry Reed just make you want to drive at least of 90 miles per hour. It also makes you want to outrun the police. If a cop tries to pull me over and that song happens to be playing, he’ll end up chasing me across a minimum of four counties, guaranteed.

East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’

A’we 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
