AA chord                        EE chord
Headed down south to the land of the pines
        GbmGbm chord                   DD chord
And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
AA chord
Starin' up the road
            EE chord         DD chord
And pray to God I see headlights


  AA chord                         EE chord
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
GbmGbm chord                      DD chord
Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
          AA chord
And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh
      EE chord             DD chord
I can see my baby tonight


   AA chord                   EE chord
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
GbmGbm chord              DD chord
Rock me mama anyway you feel

Hey, mama rock me

AA chord                     EE chord
Runnin' from the cold up in New England
      GbmGbm chord                         DD chord
I was born to be a fiddler in an old-time stringband
   AA chord
My baby plays the guitar
EE chord              DD chord
I pick a banjo now


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

AA chord                    EE chord
Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
           GbmGbm chord
I caught a trucker out of Philly
      DD chord
Had a nice long toke
    AA chord                           EE chord
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
   DD chord
To Johnson City, Tennessee


      AA chord                   EE chord
And I gotta get a move on fit for the sun
          GbmGbm chord
I hear my baby callin' my name
      DD chord
And I know that she's the only one
    AA chord
And if I die in Raleigh
   EE chord                DD chord
At least I will die free

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
