Song Description

The song describes a hitchhiking journey south along the eastern coast of the United States, from New England in the north-east, through Philadelphia, with the intended destination of Raleigh, North Carolina, where the protagonist hopes to see his lover.

Story Behind the Song

"Wagon Wheel" is composed of two different parts. The chorus and melody for the song comes from a demo recorded by Bob Dylan during the Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid sessions. Although never officially released, the Dylan song was released on a bootleg and is usually named after the chorus and its refrain of "Rock Me Mama." Although Dylan left the song an unfinished sketch, Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show wrote verses for the song around Dylan's original chorus. Secor's additional lyrics transformed "Rock Me Mama" into "Wagon Wheel." Secor has stated the song is partially autobiographical. The song has become extremely popular since its inclusion on Old Crow Medicine Show's major label debut, O.C.M.S. in 2004, although the song appeared in earlier form on the now out of print "Troubles Up and Down the Road" EP in 2001. Dylan's song is often credited to "A. Crudup.",

Lyrics


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


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



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

CHORUS

Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke I caught a trucker out of Philly Had a nice long toke
But he's a headed west from the Cumberland Gap To Johnson City, Tennessee
And I gotta get a move on fit for the sun I hear my baby callin' my name
And I know that she's the only one And if I die in Raleigh At least I will die free
