Me and Bobby McGee  Janis Joplin

Busted flat in Baton Rouge waitin' for a train
Feelin' nearly faded as my [D]jeans.
[D]Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained
[D7]Rode us all the way to New Or[G-C-G]leans.
I [G]pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
I was [G7]playin' soft while Bobby sang the [C]blues.
[C]Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was [G]holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
[D]We sang every song that driver [D7]knew.
[C]Freedom's just another word for [G]nothin' left to lose,
[D]Nothin' don't mean [D7]nothin' if it ain't [G-G7]free.
[C]Feelin' good was easy, Lord, [G]when he sang the blues.
[D]Feelin' good was good enough for me[-D7],
Good enough for me and Bobby Mc[G]Gee.
( Tab from: )
From the [G]Kentucky coal mines to the California sun,
Bobby shared the secrets of my [D]soul.
Through [D]all kinds of weather, through everything we done,
Hey, [D7]Bobby's body kept me from the [G-C-G]cold.
One [G]day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away,
He's [G7]lookin' for that home and I hope he [C]finds it.
But I'd [C]trade all my tomorrows for one [G]single yesterday,
To be [D]holdin' Bobby's body next to [D7]mine.
[C]Freedom's just another word for [G]nothin' left to lose,
And [D]nothin' ain't worth [D7]nothin', but it's [G]free.
And [C]feelin' good was easy, Lord, when [G]Bobby sang the blues,
And [D]feelin' good was good enough for m[-D7]e
Oh, good enough for me and my Bobby Mc[G]Gee.
