    Lyrics

    (Kris Kristofferson - Fred Foster)

    Busted flat in Baton Rouge waitin' 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
    I was playing sad while Bobby sang the blues
    Windshield whipers slapping time holding Bobby's hand in mine
    We sang up ever song that driver knew.

    Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
    Nothing ain't worth nothing 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 all the secrets of my soul
    Through all kinds of weather Lord through everything we done
    Yeah Bobby baby kept me from the cold.

    Then somewhere near Salinas Lord I let him slip away
    He's a looking for a home I hope he'll find
    I'd trade all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday
    A holding Bobby's body next to mine.

    Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
    Nothing ain't worth nothing 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.

    Mhmm, mhmm, mhm, my Bobby McGee.
    Mhmm, mhmm. mhm. me and Bobby McGee...
