 ---------------------------------



 ---------------------------------

[A]  [E]  [F#m]    [E]  [D]  [E]  [A]  [E]  [D]  [E]                 
Verse 1:

[A]Heading down south to the [E]land of the pines.
I’m [F#m]thumbing my way [E]in the [D]North Caroline.[E]
[A]Staring up the road, [E]pray to God I see [D]headlights.
[E]Oh, I made it [A]down the coast in [E]seventeen hours,
[F#m]Picking me a bouquet [E]of dog[D]wood flowers
[E]And I’m [A]hopin’ for Raleigh,
So [E]I can see my baby to[D]night.

Chorus:

[E]So [A]rock me momma like a [E]wagon wheel,
[F#m]Rock me momma [E]any [D]way you feel.[E]
[A]He[E]y momma [D]rock me.[E]
[A]Rock me momma like the [E]wind and the rain,
[F#m]Rock me momma [E]like a [D]south bound train.[E]
[A]He[E]y momma [D]rock me.[E]

Verse 2:

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



Bridge:

A~ B~
Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke,
F#m~ D~
I caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long toke.
A~ B~
But he’s heading west from the Cumberland gap,
[D]Johnson City, Tennessee.
[E]Now I [A]gotta get a move on [E]before the sun,
I hear my [F#m]baby calling my [E]name and I [D]know that she’s the only [E]one.
And [A]If I die in Raleigh at [E]least I will die [D]free.




Outro:

A E F#m E D E A E F#m~
