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, yeah With them windshield wipers slappin' time, And Bobby clappin' hands We finally sang every song that driver knew, yeah Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free, Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues You know, feelin' good was good enough for me 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 every night she kept me from the cold One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away Lookin' for the home I hope she'll find But I'd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday Holdin' Bobby's body next to mine Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose Nothin', that's all that Bobby left me, yeah But if feelin' good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues Hey, feelin' good was good enough for me, mm-hmm Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee =============================================== (Janis Joplin version) Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train And I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained It rode us all the way into New Orleans I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana I's playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues, yeah Windshield wipers slappin' time, I's holdin' Bobby's hand in mine We sang every song that driver knew, yeah Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose Nothin' don't mean nothin' hon' if it ain't free, no no And feelin' good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues You know, feelin' good was good enough for me Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee From the Kentucky coal mine to the California sun There Bobby shared the secrets of my soul Through all kinds of weather, through everything we done Yeah, Bobby baby kept me from the cold One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away He's lookin' for that home and I hope he finds it But I'd trade all o' my tomorrows for one single yesterday To be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose Nothin', that's all that Bobby left me, yeah But if feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues Hey, feelin' good was good enough for me, mm-hmm Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee La-da-da La-da-da-da La-da-da da-da da-da La-da-da da-la-da la-da, Bobby McGee, yeah La-da-la-da-la-da La-da-la-da-da La-da-la-da-la-la, Bobby McGee, yeah La-da-da La-da-da La da-da La da-da La-da-da La da-da La da-da Hey, my Bobby, Lord, my Bobby McGee, yeah Lo-da-lo da-la-lo-da-la Lo-da-la-lo da-la-lo la-la-lo la-la-lo la-la Hey, my Bobby, Lord, my Bobby McGee, yeah Lord, I call him my lover, call him my man I said I call him my lover, did the best I can, c'mon Hey now Bobby now, hey now Bobby McGee, yeah La-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-la Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, Lord! ------ instrumental break ------ La-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la-da la Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, yeah
