Darius Rucker - Wagon Wheel Lyrics

Heading down south to the land of the pines
I’m thumbing my way to north carolina
Staring at the road and pray to god I see headlights
I made it down the coast in 17 hours
Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I’m a hoping for raleigh, I can see my baby tonight

[Chorus]
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey, mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind bend the rain
Rock me mama like a south bound train
Hey, mama rock me

I’m running 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, I pick a banjo now
Oh, north country winters keep a getting me down
Lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
But I ain’t turning back to livin' that ole life no more

[Chorus]
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey, mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind bend the rain
Rock me mama like a south bound train
Hey, mama rock me

Walking through 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 die in raleigh, at least I will die free

[Chorus] x2
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey, mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind bend the rain
Rock me mama like a south bound train
Hey, mama rock me.
