[Verse 1]
[A]Headed down south to the [E]land of the pines
[F#m]I’m thumbin’ my way to [D]North Caroline
[A]Starin’ up the road
And [E]pray to God I see [D]headlights
[A]I made it down the coast in [E]seventeen hours
[F#m] Pickin’ me a bouquet of [D]dogwood flowers
And I’m a-[A]hopin’ for Raleigh
I can [E]see my baby to[D]night

[Chorus]
So, [A]rock me mama like a [E]wagon wheel
[F#m] Rock me mama any [D]way you feel
[A]Hey, [E] mama [D]rock me
[A]Rock me mama like the [E]wind and the rain
[F#m] Rock me mama like a [D]south-bound train
[A]Hey, [E] mama [D]rock me

[Verse 2]
[A]Runnin’ from the cold [E]up in New England
I was [F#m] born to be a fiddler in an [D]old-time string band
My [A]baby plays the guitar
[E]I pick a banjo [D]now
Ah, [A]the north country winters keep a-[E]gettin’ me down
And I lost my [F#m]money playin’ poker so I [D]had to up and leave
But I [A]ain’t a-turnin’ back
To [E]livin’ that old life no more

[Chorus]
So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
R So, [A]rock me mama like a [E]wagon wheel
[F#m] Rock me mama any [D]way you feel
[A]Hey, [E] mama [D]rock me
[A]Rock me mama like the [E]wind and the rain
[F#m] Rock me mama like a [D]south-bound train
[A]Hey, [E] mama [D]rock me

[Verse 3]
[A]Walkin’ due south [E]out of Roanoke
I caught a [F#m]trucker out of Philly
Had a [D]nice long toke
But [A]he’s a-headed west from the [E]Cumberland Gap
To [D]Johnson City, Tennessee
And I [A]gotta get a move on [E]before the sun
I hear my [F#m]baby callin’ my name
And I [D]know that she’s the only one
And [A]if I die in Raleigh
At [E]least I will die free

[Chorus]
So, [A]rock me mama like a [E]wagon wheel
[F#m] Rock me mama any [D]way you feel
[A]Hey, [E] mama [D]rock me
[A]Rock me mama like the [E]wind and the rain
[F#m] Rock me mama like a [D]south-bound train
[A]Hey, [E] mama [D]rock me
