Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show/Bob Dylan

Intro: G D Em C (2X)

 

G                         D                       Em                   C

Headed down south to the land of the pines, I’m thumbin’ my way into North Caroline

G                        D                    C

Starin’ up the road and pray to God I see headlights

G                               D               Em                

I made it down the coast in seventeen hours,  Pickin’ me a bouquet of 

   C

dogwood flowers

G                              D                   C

And I’m a hopin’ for Raleigh, I can see my baby tonight

 

Ch:

    G                   D            Em              C 

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel, Rock me mama anyway you feel

G    D      C

Hey… mama rock me

G                       D                 Em                   C

Rock me mama like the wind and the rain, Rock me mama like a south-bound train

G    D      C

Hey… mama rock me

 

Break: G D Em C G D C

 

G                     D                  Em                          

Runnin’ from the cold up in New England, I was born to be a fiddler in an 

 C

old-time string band

G                         D               C

My baby plays the guitar, I pick a banjo now 

G                                      D                      Em   

Oh, the North country winters keep a gettin’ me now, Lost my money playin’

            C 

poker so I had to up and leave

G                               D                    C

But I ain’t a turnin’ back to livin’ that old life no more

 

Ch:

    G                    D           Em              C 

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel, Rock me mama anyway you feel

G    D      C

Hey… mama rock me

G                       D                 Em                   C

Rock me mama like the wind and the rain, Rock me mama like a south-bound train

G    D      C

Hey… mama rock me

 

Break: G D Em C G D C

 

 

Strum each note once:

G                             D                   Em                    

Walkin’ to the south out of Roanoke, I caught a trucker out of Philly, had

   C

a nice long toke

     G                               D               C

But he’s a headed west from the Cumberland Gap to Johnson City, Tennessee

 

Back to normal strumming pattern:

G                          D                          Em           

And I gotta get a move on fit for the sun, I hear my baby callin’ my name,

       C

and I know that she’s the only one

G                             D               C

And if I die in Raleigh, at least I will die free

 

Chorus:

    G                    D           Em              C 

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel, Rock me mama anyway you feel

G    D      C

Hey… mama rock me

G                       D                 Em                   C

Rock me mama like the wind and the rain, Rock me mama like a south-bound train

G    D      C       C… D… G…

Hey… mama rock me…
