Tom Gabel - Wagon Wheel chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
There have been meny covers of this song, but, in my opinion, no one sings
or plays it better with as much passion as Against Me!'s Tom Gabel. This
song is a regular of his and this tab is based off of his solo album tour.
The youtube video I refer to is:

If you have any problems with the tab along the lines of strumming and when
to ring out the chords, please refer to the video I provided and try playing
along with it. It's fairly simple though, so there shouldn't be that much
trouble. And, when youv'e made your final judgement on the tab, please rate
and comment it to tell me what you think or if there's anyway I can improve
upon it.

Verse 1:

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

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

Chorus:

   G                   D
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Em              C
Rock me mama anyway you feel
G   Gmaj7     C
Hey____, mama rock me
G                     D
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Em                  C
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
G   Gmaj7     C
Hey____, mama rock me

Verse 2:

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

        G                            D
Oh, the North country winters keep a gettin' me now
        Em                       C
Lost my money playin' poker so I had to up and leave
      G
But I ain't a turnin' back
   D                    C
To livin' that old life no more

Chorus:

   G                   D
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Em              C
Rock me mama anyway you feel
G   Gmaj7     C
Hey____, mama rock me
G                     D
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Em                  C
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
G   Gmaj7     C
Hey____, mama rock me

Verse 3:

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

      G                   D
And I gotta get a move on fit for 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
   D                C
At least I will die free

Chorus:

   G                   D
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Em              C
Rock me mama anyway you feel
G   Gmaj7     C
Hey____, mama rock me
G                     D
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Em                  C
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
G   Gmaj7     C           
Hey____, mama rock me
G   Gmaj7     C           G
Hey____, mama rock me
