Wagon Wheel in C

After labouring with love over my version of the iconic song, Wagon Wheel by Canadian singer-songwriter Darius Rucker, I realized that it was in one of those tricky keys where it’s almost too low for me to sing but too high for me to sing comfortably, too.

Thus, I have reworked it in the Key of C. Whew! That was a lot of editing!
