Me and My Bobby Mcgee Lyrics

by Janis Joplin

Busted flat in Baton Rouge headin' for the trains
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 bandana
And was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues
With them windshield whispers slappin' time
And Bobby clappin' hands we finally
Sang up every song that driver knew

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 done
And everynight 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
I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's body next to mine

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
Nothin' left to show she left for me
Feeling good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
Buddy that was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

Bobby McGee

Me and Bobby McGee
Me and Bobby McGee
Me and Bobby McGee
