    Lyrics

    Busted flat in Baton rouge, headin' for the train
    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 bandanna
    I was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues
    With them windshield wipers 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
    And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free
    Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
    Buddy, that 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 through everything I've done
    And every night he kept me from the cold

    Then somewhere near Salinas I let him slip away
    Lookin' for the home I hope he'll find
    And I'll 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 is all he left me, yeah
    Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
    Buddy, that was good enough for me
    Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

    Enough for me and Bobby McGee
    Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

    Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
    And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free
    Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
    Buddy, that 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 through everything I've done
    And every night he kept me from the cold

    Then somewhere near Salinas I let him slip away
    Lookin' for the home I hope he'll find
    And I'll 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 is all he left me
    Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
    Buddy, that was good enough for me
    Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

    Enough for me and Bobby McGee
    Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee, yeah
    I let him slip away lookin' for the home I hope he finds
    Enough for me and my Bobby McGee
    Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee, yeah
    Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee, yeah
