#3319 – we've got a long way to go and a short time to get there

East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’

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

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 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 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

He’s hot on your trail

He ain’t 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 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…

i’m not used to having class on thursday mornings as that time is only reserved for my exams in my tuesday/thursday class, and though i had set my alarm to go off at 7:15 am i turned it off and kept thinking how i didn’t need to be at work until 1 pm and fell back asleep.

next thing i know, i woke up and saw it was 8:00. my class starts at 8:30 and it takes 30 minutes to get to class on a good day. quickly got dressed and left the house at 8:05. speed varied between 70-80 mph the whole way, with just a few dips under that.

guess who made it to class on time? XD i got there just after 8:30 and the professor was still stapling together the pages of the exam. it was 25 questions, multiple choice, and took me about 25 minutes. it took more time getting to school than it did to take the exam!

incidentally, this song always reminds me of richmond, as gary and i kept listening to it when we got lost trying to get out of richmond on our way down to music midtown in atlanta, haha
