    Lyrics

    Busted flat in Baton Rouge
    Waitin' for the train
    Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans
    Bobby thumbed a diesel down
    Just before it rained
    Rode us all the way to New Orleans
    I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
    And was playing soft
    While Bobby sang the blues
    windshield wipers slappin' time
    I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
    We sang every song that driver knew
    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
    And feelin' good was good enough for me
    Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

    From the coal mines Kentucky
    To the California sun
    Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
    Through all kinds of weather
    Through everything we done
    every night he kept me from the cold
    Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord
    I let him slip away
    Lookin' for the home I hope he'll find
    And 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' left is all that Bobby left me

    Feelin good was easy, Lord
    When Bobby sang the blues
    Feeling good was good enough for me
    Good enough for me and Bobby McGee
