Lyrics

Headin' down south to the land of the pines
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
Picking 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 any way 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 a guitar, I pick a banjo now
Oh, north country winters keep a-getting me down

I lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more
So, rock me mamma like a wagon wheel

Rock me mama any way you feel
Hey... momma 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 heading west from the Cumberland gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee
And I gotta get a move on before the sun
I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she's the only one
And if I died in Raleigh at least I will die free

So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way 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
So, rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama any way 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
