Ain't nothin' in this world like a good fiddle
I can't say I care much for this music video, but I *love* this song from 2001, "Wagon Wheel" by Old Crow Medicine Show. OCMS' Ketch Secor based the song off a Bob Dylan bootleg riff, "Rock Me Mama." It doesn't take much to get it stuck in my head:
The Inland Northwest's own Jeremy McComb has covered this song country-style. I don't like the lyrical changes he made and it's a song best left to the folk and bluegrass crowd, but other than that, his version ain't bad.
