OPEN MIC LYRICS

WAGON WHEEL
Bob Dylan & Ketch Secor

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

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

I’m 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 a-getting me down
Lost my money playing poker so I had to leave town
But I ain’t turning back to living that old life no more

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

Walkin’ to the south out of Roanoke
Caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long toke
But he’s a heading west from the Cumberland gap
To Johnson City, Tennessee
And I gotta get a move on before 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

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey, momma rock me
Oh, rock me momma like the wind and the rain
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey momma rock me

Old Cape Cod
Bob Dylan & Ketch Secor

If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty airQuaint little villages here and there(You’re sure) You’re sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod(Old Cape Cod, that old Cape Cod)

If you like the taste of lobster stewServed by a window with an ocean view(You’re sure) You’re sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

Winding roads that seem to beckon youMiles of green beneath the skies of blueChurch bells chimin’ on a Sunday morn’Remind you of the town where you were born

If you spend an evening you’ll want to stayWatching the moonlight on Cape Cod BayYou’re sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod(Aah-aah)

If you spend an evening you’ll want to stay (on Cape Cod Bay)Watching the moonlight on Cape Cod BayYou’re sure to fall in love with old Cape CodYou’re sure to fall in love, you’re sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

For What it’s Worth
Buffalo Springfield

There’s something happening hereBut what it is ain’t exactly clearThere’s a man with a gun over thereTelling me I got to beware

I think it’s time we stopChildren, what’s that sound?Everybody look, what’s going down?

There’s battle lines being drawnNobody’s right if everybody’s wrongYoung people speaking their mindsGetting so much resistance from behind

It’s time we stopHey, what’s that sound?Everybody look, what’s going down?

What a field day for the heat (Ooh ooh ooh)A thousand people in the street (Ooh ooh ooh)Singing songs and they carrying signs (Ooh ooh ooh)Mostly say, “Hooray for our side” (Ooh ooh ooh)

It’s time we stopHey, what’s that sound?Everybody look, what’s going down?

Paranoia strikes deepInto your life it will creepIt starts when you’re always afraidStep out of line, the men come and take you away

We better stopHey, what’s that sound?Everybody look, what’s going down?

You better stopHey, what’s that sound?Everybody look, what’s going down?

You better stopNow, what’s that sound?Everybody look, what’s going down?

You better stopChildren, what’s that sound?Everybody look, what’s going down?
