Matt Andersen - Wagon Wheel


If you never seen this guy play your missing out. You can see him play this song at 
It's the best version of this song I've ever heard.

Capo on 2

Intro: G D Em C G D C
G                 D
Headed down south to the land of the pines
   Em                    C
And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
G                   D                       C
Starin' up the road and pray to God I see headlights
G                           D
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
Em                       C
Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
G                           D                      C
And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh So I can see my baby tonight

G                D
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Em              C
Rock me mama anyway you feel
G       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        C
Hey mama rock me

G                                    D
Running from the cold up in New England.
Em                                   C
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band.
G                                     D                     C
My baby plays a guitar,I pick a banjo now
G                                      D
Oh north country winters started getting me down,
Em                                              C
I lost my money playing poker so I had to up and leave.
G                        D                      C
But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more.


G                                              D
I was Walkin' though the south out of Roanoke,
Em                                             C
I caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long toke.
G                                     D
But he’s heading west from the Cumberland gap,
Johnson City, Tennessee.
G                                        D
Now I gotta get a move on pray the sun,
Em                                             C
I hear my baby calling my name she’s says I’m the only one.
G                              D                     C
And If I die in Raleigh at least I will die free.
