I'm sick 'n' tired of this dirty air,
And I'm sick and tired of this runnin' around;
And I don't get why folks 'round here,
Don't give a damn if you're up or your down.
Well, I'm packin' up my guitar,
My dog and my truck, and I'm leavin' town;
Highway Four-O-One's crazy,
Who cares? I'm Eastern bound.

Eastern bound, I'm burnin' down that highway,
My foot's like lead,
and I'm leavin' all this behind me;
Where the waves wash to shore,
And the ladies are always smilin';
Back to my hometown,
I'm Eastern bound.

This city life's been good to me,
Made some money and some
friends along the way;
And I hope they can understand,
My home's always been around that bay.
Where the fog rolls in,
And it doesn't clear for days,
Then the sun shines through,
And you thank God you're here in this place.

Eastern bound, I'm burnin' down that highway,
My foot's like lead,
and I'm leavin' all this behind me;
Where the waves wash to shore,
And the ladies are always smilin';
Back to my hometown,
I'm Eastern bound.

Well, I can't wait to see my momma's smile,
When I pull up that drive;
Or my daddy's old blue eyes lightin' up,
With a tear in his eye.
I've been gone too long,
I've forgotten how the ocean sounds;
Only a few more miles to go,
I'm Eastern bound.

Eastern bound, I'm burnin' down that highway,
My foot's like lead,
and I'm leavin' all this behind me;
Where the waves wash to shore,
And the ladies are always smilin',
Back to my hometown,
I'm Eastern bound.
