(Play twice)

G D
I’m headed down South to the land of the pines
Em C
I’m thumbin’ my way to North Caroline
G D C C
Staring at the road and pray to God I see headlights

G D
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Em C
Pickin’ me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
G D C C
And I’m hoping for Raleigh; I can see my baby tonight

(Chorus)
G D
So, Rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Em C
Rock me mama any way you feel
G D C C
Heyeeeeeeeeeeeeee mama Rock me
G D
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Em C
Rock me mama like a south bound train
G D C C
Heyeeeeeeeeeeeeee mama Rock me

G, D, Em, C
G, D, C

Runnin’ from the cold, up in New England
I was born to be a fiddler in an old town string band
My baby plays the guitar; I pick a banjo now
Ahh, the North Country winters keep a gettin’ down
Lost my money playin’ poker so I had up and leave
But I ain’t a turning back, livin’ that old life no more

(Chorus)

G, D, Em, C
G, D, C
G, D, Em, C
G, D, C

Walkin’ to the South out of Roanoke
I caught a trucker out of Phillie; had a nice long toke
But he’s a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
Johnson City, Tennessee
Now I gotta get a move on, Pay for the sun
I hear my baby callin’ money and I know that she’s the only one
And if I die in Raleigh, least I will die free

(Chorus)
