Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I was asked by a bartender at a bar that I play open mic nite to play this song the 
next time I come by. I tried to use the other version that was already on
this site and I didn't like it. So after trying to listen to the original
album version and looking at youtube covers, I came up with this. Hopefully
you also prefer this version over the latter. Listen to the song if it
helps with the rhythm and the chord placements. Also, be sure to rate and/or
comment on this tab when you've made your final judgement.

  Must have played in a thousand bands_

    D                               C    D  Em       D/F#
But I'm just here tonight, tomorrow I'll be gone_____

And those drivers always ask to hear that same old song___

Chorus:

G                   C

               D
From your back door

              C/G        G
Just put that hammer down_

G7              C
 This young man feels___

Those eighteen wheels_

go right into the next verse.

  I've heard all___ those hard luck tales

  From all of you U.S. males_

     D                                   C    D      Em        D/F#
I've heard you tell those lies about the love you've known_____

G          Am7      G/B      C
  And I've followed___ those highway signs

D                         C/G              G
  And I've run down those thin white lines_

           D                              C    D  Em    D/F#
Like those drivers this old road is all I call my own___

Just put that hammer down_

G7              C
 This young man feels___

               A
Those eighteen wheels_

          D                                 C    G Em     
That keep turning 'round to take me down to Shak-y Town___

Simply amazing! You managed to figure it out 100% exactly the same as the published sheet music, but also managed to get 5 of your chord diagrams wrong.
