Wagon Wheel Chords/Lyrics/Verse

G                                              D
Headed down south to the land of the pines
                    Em                               C
And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
G
Starin' up the road
                       D                    C
And pray to God I see headlights

      G                                              D
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Em                                         C
Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
                       G
And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh
            D                    C
I can see my baby tonight

Rock me mama anyway you feel

Hey, mama rock me
G                                          D
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Em                                       C
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
G     D              C
Hey, mama rock me

G                                     D
Runnin' from the cold up in New England
            Em                                     C
I was born to be a fiddler in an old-time stringband
          G
My baby plays the guitar
D                       C
I pick a banjo now

                  G                                                D
Oh, the North country winters keep a gettin' me now
                  Em                                    C
Lost my money playin' poker so I had to up and leave
            G
But I ain't a turnin' back
        D                          C
To livin' that old life no more

Hey, mama rock me

Wagon Chords/Lyrics/Verse 3

G                                  D
Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
                     Em
I caught a trucker out of Philly
             C
Had a nice long toke
          G                                                      D
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
            C
To Johnson City, Tennessee

             G                              D
And I gotta get a move on fit for the sun
                   Em
I hear my baby callin' my name
              C
And I know that she's the only one
         G
And if I die in Raleigh
        D                     C
At least I will die free
