Wagon Wheel
Written by Bob Dylan and Ketch Secor
Chord-chart by Lynn Lewis




G / D / Headed down south to the land of the pine, |Em / C / And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caro-line, G / Starin' up the road, D / |C / / / And pray to G-d 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 to-night.


|G / D / | So rock me mama like a wagon wheel, Em / C / | Rock me mama any-way 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.


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.



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 fit for 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.
