Wagon Wheel Lyrics - Against Me!

Review The Song (13)



Heading down south to the land of the pines.
I’m thumbing my way in the North Caroline.
Staring up the road, pray to God I see headlights.
Oh, I made it down the coast in seventeen hours,
Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I’m hopin’ for Raleigh,
So I can see my baby tonight.

[Chorus:]
So rock me momma like a wagon wheel,
Rock me momma any way you feel.
Hey momma rock me.
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain,
Rock me momma like a south bound train.
Hey momma rock me.

Running from the cold up in New England.
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band.

My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now.
Oh north country winters keep getting me,
Now I lost my money playing poker so I had to up and leave.
But I ain't turning back to living 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 heading west FROM the Cumberland gap,
Johnson City, Tennessee.
Now I gotta get a move on fit for the sun,
I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she’s the only one.
And If I die in Raleigh at least I will die free.

[Chorus]

If you are a music lover like me and just want to hear different interpretations, you should also check out the Straight Shot version.



not a bad cover...but Hoe does it better... | Reviewer: Sean | 8/26/2007

The CT bluegrass band "Hoe" covers this song and I have to say that it is the best version that I have heard yet. Yes...better than OCMS.

And as for the Dylan controversy...

Dylan wrote the chorus to the song during the Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid sessions in 1972, but never got beyond that. Secor stumbled across it and finished it as a gift to Bob on his 60th birthday in 2001.

The point of the lyrics on THIS page; are ment for people who are searching the version covered by Against Me. Who the fuck cares if someone else covered it; aweosme. There are about a billion covers of any song..
this of course is in reply to the first post. Stating this isn't an orginal Against Me song; which most people ARE aware of. DUH. :)
Good song; I like the Against Me cover best though.



Hah. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/14/2007

Does it state anywhere that this song was WRITTEN by Against Me? No... This page is for the lyrics to the Against Me cover..
Most fans of Against Me, are most likely aware of the fact that this song; does not belong to Against Me, and that it is INFACT a cover. Most bands at one point cover A song..
Did you want a fucking award for stating the original owner of the song?
Congradufuckinglations. :)
Happy?

Anyways; that was in reply to the first post of course. And in know way is supposed to be "mean" or "bitchy".
Key song.
I rather this version. But the original is also good. :)



Why? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/25/2007

Against Me does a decent job, but OCMS does it better. Against me is not really a folk band, at all, and this song is a folk tune.They do a good job but it just doesn't come close to the feeling that you get when listing to the Old Crow. It is an amazing song, but why Against Me choose to do it is beyond me.
Also for those of you who never heard the OCMS, look them up. If you love this song, you will probably like them a lot.

You're all wrong | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/7/2007

Bob Dylan wrong the whole chorus. (and the chord progression, mind you) With a little research on google, you can hear it for yourself. Old Crow Medicine show wrote the rest of the song, and against me covers the whole thing.



against me is better | Reviewer: ulibuds | 5/24/2007

old crow medicine show sing it, but against me! sings it better.



Bob dylan wrote one line. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/19/2007

And that one line he wrote is "Hey mama, rock me"
That's it.
