Wagon Wheel

WAGON WHEEL

INTRO: G D Emin C G D CC

V1: Heading down south to the land of the pines
I'm thumbing my way into North Caroline
Staring up the road and pray to God I see headlights

I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a-hopin' for Raleigh, I can see my baby tonight

CHORUS: So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey mama rock me

Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a southbound train
Hey mama rock me

V2: Running from the cold up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band
My baby plays the guitar, I pick a banjo now

Oh, north country winters keep a getting me down
Lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more

CHORUS

GUITAR RIDE

V3: Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke [QUIETER]
I caught a trucker out of Philly, had a nice long toke
But he's a heading west from the Cumberland Gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee

And I gotta get a move on before the sun
I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she's the only one
And if I died in Raleigh, at least I will die free [BRING IT UP]

CHORUS
