 CC
 BUSTED FLAT IN BATON ROUGE,
 C
 HEADIN FOR THE TRAINS;
 CCG7
 FEELIN NEARLY FADED AS MY JEANS,
 G7G7
 BOBBY THUMBED A DIESEL DOWN
 G7G7
 JUST BEFORE IT RAINED;
 G7G7C
 TOOK US ALL THE WAY TO NEW ORLEANS.
 CCCC
 I TOOK MY HARPON OUT OF MY DIRTY RED BANDANNA
 CC7F
AND WAS BLOWIN' SAD WHILE BOBBY SANG THE BLUES;
 FFF
 _ _ WITH THEM WINDSHIELD WIPERS SLAPPIN TIME
 CC
AND BOBBY'S CLAPPIN HANDS WE FINALLY
 G7G7C
 SANG EVERY SONG THAT DRIVER KNEW
 FFCC
 FREEDOM'S JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR NOTHIN LEFT TO LOSE,
 G7G7C
 NOTHIN' AIN'T WORTH NOTHIN' BUT IT'S FREE;
 FFCC
 FEELIN' GOOD WAS EASY, LORD WHEN BOBBY SANG THE BLUES;
 G7G7G7
 AND FEELIN WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME,
 G7G7C
 GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME AND BOBBY MCGEE
 DDD
 _ _ FROM THE COAL MINES OF KENTUCKY
 DD
TO THE CALIFORNIA SUN,
 DDA7
 BOBBY SHARED THE SECRETS OF MY SOUL;
 A7A7
 STANDIN' RIGHT BESIDE ME, LORD
 A7A7
 THROUGH EVERYTHING I DONE,
 A7A7D
 AND EVERY NIGHT SHE KEPT ME FROM THE COLD.
 DDD
 _ _ _ THEN SOMEWHERE NEAR SALINAS, LORD,
 DD
LET HER SLIP AWAY
 DD7G
 LOOKIN' FOR THE HOME I HOPE SHE'LL FIND;
 GGG
 _ AND I'D TRADE ALL OF MY TOMORROWS
 D
FOR A SINGLE YESTERDAY
 A7S7C
 HOLDIN BOBBY'S BODY NEXT TO MINE
 GGDD
 FREEDOM'S JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR NOTHIN LEFT TO LOSE,
 A7A7D
 NOTHIN' AIN'T WORTH NOTHIN' BUT IT'S FREE;
 GGDD
 FEELIN' GOOD WAS EASY, LORD WHEN BOBBY SANG THE BLUES;
 A7A7A7
 AND FEELIN WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME,
 A7A7D
 GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME AND BOBBY MCGEE

ME AND BOBBY MCGEE
BY KRIS KRISTOFFERSON
I am not sure which album this song is on, but I have always considered it
a classic. I have been playing it this way for sometime, and it sounds OK.
I use a capo on the second fret so that the song can be played in the simple
keys of G and A.
Dwight
 A
 Busted flat in Baton Rouge and heading for the trains
 E
feeling nearly faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained
 A
took us all the way to New Orleans
I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
 D
and was blowing sad while Bobby sang the Blues
with them windshield wipers slapping time
 AEA
and Bobby clapping hands we finally sang up every song that driver knew
 DA
 Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose
 EA
 Nothing ain't worth nothing but it's free
 DA
 Feeling good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the Blues
 E
 Feeling good was good enough for me
 A
good enough for me and Bobby McGee
 B
 >From the coal mines of Kentucky to the California sun
 F#
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Standing right beside me Lord through everything I done
 B
Every night she kept me from the cold
Then somewhere near Salinas Lord I let her slip away
 E
searching for the home I hope she'll find
 B
And I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday
 F#B
 holding Bobby's body next to mine
 EB
 Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose
 F#B
 Nothing left is all she left for me
 EB
 Feeling good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the Blues
Buddy that was good enough for me
 B
good enough for me and Bobby McGee
(Fade out with)
La de da de da de da da La de da de da
 F#
La de da da me and Bobby McGee
La de da de da de da da La de da de da
 B
La de da da me and Bobby McGee
