Wagon Wheel

It's no secret that a lot of SMCM students are obsessed with the Old Crow Medicine Show Wagon Wheel.  But why???  When did this obsession begin?  Can any alumni shed some light on how long people have had major boners for this song???



Not sure where this sign is actually located, but I stole it from someone's tumblr.  Do yall think that we should have a 'wagon wheel dr' so that students can repeatedly steal it (via students stealing that scarecrow on route 5, RIP scarebro).

I guess Wagon Wheelies has a lot of common themes like 'going South' (via most students are from the North [via goddam Yankees]) and wanting to get 'it on' with a girlie (via sex). 

If yall check out Spotify there is a really sweet playlist of a bunch of Wagon Wheel covers that you can find here if yall are into that.

Do yall ever like to play this song to end the night/signal everyone to leave ur house???

Is hitchhiking 'cool' anymore?  Once I left my bicycle at the Green Door and kinda wanted to hitchhike my way there (via 2-3 miles) but ended up walking instead out of fear.

Maybe we all just wanted 2 get rocked like a waggony wheel???

Is Wagon Wheel our fight song via lack of football teams???

EDIT:  Also, that post a week or so about about cigarette buttz was supposed to have an image attached but it failed.  It was a picture of a cigarette butt holder on campus that was overflowing.

  3. Honestly, I give Echo all the credit. Someone played it once and she went crazy, dancing and singing too it (I actually have it on video somewhere) and it just grew from there...

    1. This is funny I just saw this! me (Echo) heard TNA sing it when I was a freshman ( it was that blond chick that worked at the door whos name I'm blanking on) aaaaaaand I had heard it when I was young and liked it then, so started singing it daily in my room and started playing it everywhere. but for me it started with TNA singing it, not sure if it was around prior to that..

    2. Yeah I think it's been popular here awhile. Um, are you talking about Linn/Lynn? I didn't know you were so into it. I should ask some alums.
