Wagon Wheel Lyrics And Guitar Chords By Nathan Carter.
The original version of this song was written and recorded by Bob Dylan. Bob put a ''Country'' beat to the song which is very unusual for him as he's a folk singer primarily. He called it ''Rock Me Mamma''. That was 1972 and years later a group called Old Crow Medicine Show used part of the song. It's become known nowadays as simply ''Wagon Wheel''.
In 2013 Irish country singer Nathan Carter got hold of the song and recorded it. I don't think Nathan realized how big of a hit it would become. But it has, and since Nathan recorded it you can't go out for a night in Ireland without hearing this song being covered by bands in every pub in Ireland. I have given 4 different arrangements of the chords in the keys of G, D, C and A Major.

Key Of D Major
[D]Heading down south to the [A]land of the pines
I'm [Bm]thumbing my way into [G]North Caroline
[D]Staring up the road and [A]pray to God I see [G]headlights
I [D]made it down the coast in [D]seventeen hours
[Bm]Picking me a bouquet of [G]dogwood flowers
And I'm a-[D]hopin' for Raleigh, I can [A]see my baby to[G]night


(chorus)

So [D]rock me momma like a [A]wagon wheel
Rock[Bm] me momma any[G] way you feel
[D]Hey, [A] momma [G]rock me
[D]Rock me momma like the [A]wind and the rain                  
[Bm]Rock me momma like a[G] south bound train
[D]Hey,  [A]momma [G]rock me


instrumental
[D]  [A]  [Bm]  [G,] [D]  [A]  [G,]



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


Repeat Chorus
(instrumental)
[D]  [A]  [Bm]  [G,] [D]  [A]  [G,]

[D]Walkin' to the south [A]out of Roanoke                         
I caught a [Bm]trucker out of Philly had a [G]nice long toke                           
But [D]he's a heading west from the [A]Cumberland gap
To [G]Johnson City, Tennessee                  
And I [D]gotta get a move on [A]before the sun                       
I hear my [Bm]baby calling my name and I [G]know that she's the only one                                   
And [D]if I died in Raleigh at [A]least I will die [G]free
