headin down south to the land of the pines
thumbin my way down to north carolina
starrin up the road praying that i see headlights
made it down the coast in 17 hours
pickin me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
and im hopin to raleigh that i can see my baby tonight

so rock me mama like a wagon wheel
rock me mama any way you feel
now, 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.

ive been running from the cold
up in new england
i was born to be a fiddler and an old time string man
my baby plays the guitar, i play the banjo and now, yeah

well the north country winters
keep getting me down
i lost my money playing poker
i had to up and leave.
i turnin back and livin that old life no more.

so rock me mama like a wagon wheel
rock me mama any way you feel
now, 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.

go ahead..

ive been walkin due south out of roanoke
i met a trucker out of phillie, had a nice long toke
hes heading west to the cumberland gap
to johnson city, tennessee
i got to get a move on quick from the sun
i hear my baby calling my name and i know she is the only one
and if i die in raleigh at least i know i will die free
yeah

so rock me mama like a wagon wheel
rock me mama any way you feel
now, 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
now, 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.

hey, mama rock me, yeahhhh.

    General CommentLove this song!!!
    I came across this version that is Awesome, . . . sexier than the original, IMHO!!
    "Wagon Wheel Gone Trop Rock" Has a Jimmy Buffett twist - funny!
