Jerry Reed - The Legend Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • You heard about the legend of Jesse James
  • John Henry just to mention some names
  • But there's a truck driving legend in the south today
  • A man called Bandit from Atlanta G.A.
  • Every gear jammer knows his name
  • They swear he got icewater runnin in his veins
  • Foot like lead, and nerves like steel
  • He's gonna go to glory ridin 18 wheels
  • He left Atlanta back in '63
  • Callin him the loner from Tennessee
  • He hit Monteville in the driving rain
  • So hard he couldn't even see the passing lane
  • Well he started down the grade when he lost the gear
  • He hit them brakes found he had no air
  • The Monteville grade is steep and long
  • And everbody that seen it thought the Bandit was gone
  • Well his truck jack-knifed turned completely 'round
  • He was coming down backwards 'bout the speed of sound
  • Alot of folks seen him and they all say
  • He had his head out the windae Yelling clear the way
  • Well he got to the bottom safe and sound
  • Everybody asked Bandit how he made it down
  • He said folks when the truck picked up too much speed
  • I just run along beside it and drug my feet
  • You heard about the legend of Jesse James
  • John Henry just to mention some names
  • But there's a truck driving legend in the south today
  • A man called Bandit from Atlanta G.A.
  • Every gear jammer knows his name
  • They swear he got icewater runnin in his veins
  • Foot like lead, and nerves like steel
  • He's goin up to glory ridin 18 wheels
