Rock Me Mama

Hurry up. Scroll the whole way down the page to the song playlist. Make sure WAGON WHEEL is playing. Now turn your volume WAY up.

This song always reminds me of Joe in his old beat-up station wagon heading down from New Hampshire to North Carolina on his way to be with me ... forever (little did he know).

"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
(the old beat-up station wagon)
