    Wagon Wheel

    Posted by Larry Karnowski at May 5, 2004 01:50 PM

    Written by Bob Dylan with additional lyrics by Ketch Secor

    Performed by the Old Crow Medicine Show

    Headed down south to the land of the pines

    And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline

    Starin' up the road

    And pray to God I see headlights

    I made it down the coast in seventeen hours

    Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers

    And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh

    I can see my baby tonight

    So rock me mama like a wagon wheel

    Rock me mama anyway you feel

    Hey mama rock me

    Rock me mama like the wind and the rain

    Rock me mama like a south-bound train

    Hey mama rock me

    Runnin' from the cold up in New England

    I was born to be a fiddler in an old-time stringband

    My baby plays the guitar

    I pick a banjo now

    Oh, the North country winters keep a gettin' me now

    Lost my money playin' poker so I had to up and leave

    But I ain't a turnin' back

    To livin' that old life no more

    So rock me mama like a wagon wheel

    Rock me mama anyway you feel

    Hey mama rock me

    Rock me mama like the wind and the rain

    Rock me mama like a south-bound train

    Hey mama rock me

    Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke

    I caught a trucker out of Philly

    Had a nice long toke

    But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap

    To Johnson City, Tennessee

    And I gotta get a move on before the sun

    I hear my baby callin' my name

    And I know that she's the only one

    And if I die in Raleigh

    At least I will die free

    So rock me mama like a wagon wheel

    Rock me mama anyway you feel

    Hey mama rock me

    Rock me mama like the wind and the rain

    Rock me mama like a south-bound train

    Hey mama rock me
