Me And Bobby Mcgee

Kris Kristofferson

Capo 1

  Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the train
Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down,
Just before it rained
Took us all the way to New  Orleans
 I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
And was blowing sad while  Bobby sang the blues
With those windshield wipers slappin' time
And Bobby clappin' hands
We finally sang up every song that driver knew
1st Chorus:
 Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
 Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free
 Feeling good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the blues
 Feeling good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee
From the coal mines of Kentucky to the California sun
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Standin' right beside me Lord
Through everything I've done
And every night she kept me from the cold
Then somewhere near Salinas Lord I let her slip away
Lookin' for the home I hope she'll find
And I'd trade all of my tomorrows
For a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's body next to mine
2nd Chorus:
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
Nothin' left is all she left for me
Feeling good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the blues
And buddy that was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee
