Old Crow Medicine Show – Wagon Wheel (Tab and Chords)

Old Crow Medicine Show – Wagon Wheel (Chords)

What a brilliant song. And one that’s very popular with uke groups. It started life as a half-written Bob Dylan song called Rock Me, Mama before OCMS finished it up and launched their career with it. It’s been covered many times since with Darius Rucker‘s being the most popular.

Like the original, I’m using a capo on the second fret. It’s not essential but it does make the chords much easier and avoids the dreaded E chord.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this simple pattern all the way through:

d – d – d u d u

Use that once for every chord until the last C in the progression where you play it twice.

Here’s how it sounds:

Intro and Outro (Tab)

Here’s an arrangement of the violin part in the intro (which starts four bars into the song). Again, there’s a capo on the second fret.

The example finishes up with the violin lick in the outro.
