Ok i dont know the complete tabs for the song, but here are the chords that *I* piked up.
INTRO: E
A
Well you heard about the Legend of Jesse James,

E
And John Henry just to mention some names,

A
But there's a truck driving legend in the south today,

RIFF 1
A man called bandit from atlanta, GA

A
Every Gear Jammer knows his name,

E
They swear he's got eyes, got it runnin' in his veins,

A                                          A (one hard strum)
With a boot like? lip and nerves like steel,

He's gonna go to glory ridin' 18 wheels.

RIFF 2

E
Well he left atlanta back in '63,

A
Haulin' him a load up to tennesse,

E
He hit monteagle and he'd drive in rain,

RIFF3
So hard he couldnt' even see the passing lane,

E
Well he started down the grade when he lost a gear,

A
He hit them brakes, found he had no air

E
The monteagle grade is steep and long,

RIFF 3
And everybody that seen had thought the bandit was gone,

RIFF 2

E
Well the truck jack-knifed, turned completely round

A
He was comin' down backwards about the speed of sound

E
Alot of folks seen him, and they all say

RIFF 3
He had his head out the window yelling "clear the way!"

E
Well he got to the bottom, safe and sound

A
Everybody asked bandit how he made it down

E
He said folks when the truck picks up too much speed

RIFF 3
I just run along beside it and drug my feet

END NOTES OF RIFF 1

A

He's goin up to glory ridin' 18 wheels.

RIFF 2 x3

Pretty sure they're more than 2 chords... But, acceptible for a first tab... and the lyrics are...
A foot like led, and nerves like steel, he's goin' up to glory ridin' 18 wheels...
