Capo 2 to sing in original key

 GD
 Headed down south to the land of the pines
 EmC
And I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
 G
 Starin' up the road
 DC
And pray to God I see headlights

 GD
made it down the coast in seventeen hours
 EmC
 Pickin' me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
 G
And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh
 DC
I can see my baby tonight

 GD
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
 EmC
 Rock me mama anyway you feel
 GDC
 Hey, mama rock me
 GD
 Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
 EmC
 Rock me mama like a south-bound train
 GDC
 Hey, mama rock me

G, D, Em, C
G, D, C

 GD
 Runnin' from the cold up in New England
 EmC
I was born to be a fiddler in an old-time stringband
 G
My baby plays the guitar
 DC
 I pick a banjo now

 GD
Oh, the North country winters keep a gettin' me now
 EmC
Lost my money playin' poker so I had to leave town
 G
But I ain't a turnin' back
 DC
To livin' that old life no more

 GD
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
 EmC
 Rock me mama anyway you feel
 GDC
 Hey, mama rock me
 GD
 Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
 EmC
 Rock me mama like a south-bound train
 GDC
 Hey, mama rock me

G, D, Em, C
G, D, C 2x

 GD
 Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke
 Em
I caught a trucker out of Philly
 C
Had a nice long toke
 GD
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap
 C
To Johnson City, Tennessee

 GD
And I gotta get a move on  before the sun
 Em
I hear my baby callin' my name
 C
And I know that she's the only one
 G
And if I die in Raleigh
 DC
At least I will die free

 GD
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
 EmC
 Rock me mama anyway you feel
 GDC
 Hey, mama rock me
 GD
 Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
 EmC
 Rock me mama like a south-bound train
 GDCG
 Hey, mama rock me

It's the same chord progression in "Let It Be", by John Lennon ;)
