    Lyrics

    (Kris Kristofferson - Fred Foster)

    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 har'poon out of my dirty red bandana
    And was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues
    With those windshield whipers slappin' time
    And Bobby clappin' hands with mine
    We sang up ever song that driver knew.

    Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
    And 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 every night she kept me from the cold.

    Then somewhere near Salinas,
    Lord, I let her slip away
    Searchin' for a home I hope she'll find
    I'd trade all of my tomorrows
    For just one yesterday
    Holding Bobby's body close to mine.

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

    La, la, la, la, la, la,
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la
    Me and Bobby McGee...
