[G] Headed down south to the [D] land of the pines
And I'm [Em] thumbin' my way into [C] North Caroline
[G] Starin' up the road
And [D] pray to God I see [C] headlights [C]

I [G] made it down the coast in [D] seventeen hours
[Em] Pickin' me a bouquet of [C] dogwood flowers
And I'm a [G] hopin' for Raleigh
I can [D] see my baby to- [C] night [C]

Chorus
So [G] rock me mama like a [D] wagon wheel
[Em] Rock me mama any [C] way you feel
[G] Hey, [D] mama [C] rock me [C]
[G] Rock me mama like the [D] wind and the rain
[Em] Rock me mama like a [C] south-bound train
[G] Hey, [D] mama [C] rock me [C]

[G] Runnin' from the cold [D] up in New England
I was [Em] born to be a fiddler in an [C] old-time stringband
My [G] baby plays the guitar
[D] I pick a banjo [C] now [C]

Oh, the [G] North country winters keep a [D] gettin' me now
Lost my [Em] money playin' poker so I [C] had to up and leave
But I [G] ain't a turnin' back
To [D] livin' that old life no [C] more [C]

[Em] Rock me mama like a [C] south-bound train
[G] Hey, [D] mama [C] rock me [C]

[G↓] Walkin' to the south [D↓] out of Roanoke
I caught a [Em↓] trucker out of Philly
Had a [C↓] nice long toke
But [G↓] he's a headed west from the [D↓] Cumberland Gap
To [C↓] Johnson City, [C↓] Tennessee

And I [G] gotta get a move on [D] fit for the sun
I hear my [Em] baby callin' my name
And I [C] know that she's the only one
And [G] if I die in Raleigh
At [D] least I will die [C] free [C]
