(I personally like to use a capo on the second fret, that makes the chords  A = G, 
E = D, F#m = Em, D = C)

Intro: 
A-E-F#m-D-A-E-D x2

A                        E
Headed down south to the land of the pines
    F#m                         D
I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
A              
Starin' up the road
E                D 
Pray to God I see headlights

  A                         E
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours
F#m                      D
Pickin' you a bouquet of dogwood flowers
          A
And I'm a hopin' for  Raleigh
      E            D
I can see my baby tonight

   A                   E
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
F#m             D
Rock me mama anyway you feel
A E      D
Hey mama rock me
A                     E
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
F#m                 D
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
A E      D
Hey mama rock me

A-E-F#m-D-A-E-D 

A                     E
Runnin' from the cold up in New England
      F#m                        D
I was born to be a fiddler in an old-time stringband
   A                     E
My baby plays the guitar
           D
I pick the banjo now
        A                            E
Oh, the North country winters keep a gettin' me down
        F#m                      D
Lost my money playin' poker so I had to up and leave
      A               
But I ain't a turnin' back
   E                       D
To livin' that old life no more

   A                   E
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
F#m             D
Rock me mama anyway you feel
A E      D
Hey mama rock me
A                     E
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
F#m                 D
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
A E      D
Hey mama rock me

Solo:
A-E-F#m-D-A-E-D x4

(One strum per chord)
A                  E              
Walkin' down south out of Roanoke
           F#m
I caught a trucker out of Philly
      D
Had a nice long toke
    A                           E
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
   D        
To Johnson City, Tennessee

(pick up the strum)

      A                   E
And I gotta get a move on before the sun
          F#m
I hear my baby callin' my name
      D
And I know that she's the only one
    A           
And if I die in Raleigh
   E                D
At least I will die free

   A                   E
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
F#m             D
Rock me mama anyway you feel
A E      D
Hey mama rock me
A                     E
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
F#m                 D
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
A E      D
Hey mama rock me         x2
