Standard Tuning
Capo 2nd fret

G, D, Em, C

G, D, C   2x



    

G                        D

Headed down south to the land of the pines
        Em                   C

And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
G

Starin' up the road
            D         C

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

And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh
      D             C

I can see my baby tonight

   G                   D

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Em              C

Rock me mama anyway you feel
G   D     C

Hey, 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

Hey, mama rock me



    

G, D, Em, C

G, D, C

G                     D

Runnin' from the cold up in New England
      Em                         C

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

My baby plays the guitar
D              C

I pick a banjo now

        G                            D

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

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

But I ain't a turnin' back
   D                    C

To livin' that old life no more

   G                   D

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Em              C

Rock me mama anyway you feel
G   D     C

Hey, 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

Hey, mama rock me

G, D, Em, C

G, D, C   2x

G                    D

Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
           Em
I caught a trucker out of Philly
      C

Had a nice long toke
    G                           D

But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
   C

To Johnson City, Tennessee

      G                   D

And I gotta get a move on fit for the sun
          Em
I hear my baby callin' my name
      C

And I know that she's the only one
    G

And if I die in Raleigh
   D                C

At least I will die free


   G                   D

So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Em              C

Rock me mama anyway you feel
G   D     C

Hey, 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           G

Hey, mama rock me

Headed down south to the land of the pines
And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
Starin' up the road
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 string band
My baby plays the guitar

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
