Me and Bobby McGee (Kris Khristophosan)

C

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the train

G7

Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans

Bobby thumbed a diesel down,

Just before it rained

C

Took us all the way to New Orleans

C

I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna

C7

F

And was blowing sad while Bobby sang the blues

With those windshield wipers slappin' time

C

And Bobby clappin' hands

G7 C

We finally sang up every song that driver knew

Chorus

F C

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

G7 C

Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free

F C

Feeling good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the blues

G7

Feeling good was good enough for me

C

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
