ME AND BOBBY McGEE (Kris Kristofferson)

[each chord is the same length; that's either one measure or
half a measure, depending on how you look at it.]
[For tbe intro, strum 2 wbole-beat G cbords, tben 4 balf-beat C cbords.] 
[G] [i-]nt[C]ro] [G] [-] [C] [G] [-] [C] [G] [-] [C]
[G]Busted flat in B[G]aton Rouge,[G] waitin' for a tr[G]ain
When I's [G]feelin' near as f[G]aded as m[D7]y jeans[D7]
[D7]Bobby thumbed a d[D7]iesel down[D7] just before it r[D7]ained
And r[D7]ode us all the w[D7]ay into New Or[G]le[-]an[C]s[G]
I [G]pulled my harp[G]oon out of my [G]dirty red band[G]ana
I's [G]playin' soft while B[G7]obby sang the bl[C]ues[C]
[C]Windshield wipers sl[C]appin' time, I was[G] holdin' Bobby's [G]hand in mine
[D7]We sang every s[D7]ong that driver k[D7]new[D7]
[C]Freedom's just an[C]other word for[G] nothin' left to l[G]ose
[D7]Nothin', it ain't n[D7]othin' honey, if it ain't fr[G]ee[G]
And [C]feelin' good was [C]easy, lord, oh,[G] when he sang the [G]blues
You know [D7]feelin' good was [D7]good enough for m[D7]e[D7]
[D7]Good enough for m[D7]e and my Bobby Mc[G]Gee[G] [A] [A]
>From the[A] Kentucky [A]coal mines to the[A] California[A] sun
Yeah [A]Bobby shared the s[A]ecrets of m[E7]y soul[E7]
Through [E7]all kinds of w[E7]eather, through [E7]everything we d[E7]one
Yeah [E7]Bobby baby [E7]kept me from the [A]cold[A]
One [A]day up near Sal[A]inas, lo-ord,[A] I let him slip aw[A]ay
He's [A]lookin' for that h[A7]ome and I hope he f[D]inds it[D]
Well I'd [D]trade all my tom[D]orrows for one [A]single yester[A]day
To be [E7]holdin' Bobby's b[E7]ody next to m[E7]ine[E7]
[D]Freedom's just an[D]other word for[A] nothin' left to l[A]ose
[E7]Nothin', and that's a[E7]ll that Bobby l[A]eft me[A]
Well, [D]feelin' good was [D]easy, lo-o-[A]ord, when he sang the [A]blues
And [E7]feelin' good was [E7]good enough for m[E7]e[E7]
[E7]Good enough for m[E7]e and my Bobby Mc[A]Gee yeah[A]
