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


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


   A                   E
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Gbm              D
Rock me mama anyway you feel
A   E     D
Hey, mama rock me
A                     E
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Gbm                  D
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
A   E     D
Hey, mama rock me

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


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


   A                   E

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


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


   A                   E
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
