Song Presentation: Me and Bobby McGee by Janis Joplin

[Verse 1]

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train

When I was feeling nearly faded as my jeans

Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained

And rode us all the way to New Orleans

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana

I was playing soft while Bobby sung the blues, yeah

Windshield wipers slapping time I was holding Bobby’s hand in mine

We sang every song that driver knew

[Chorus]

Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose

Nothing, I mean nothing, honey if it ain’t free, no no

Yeah feeling good was easy Lord, when he sang the blues

You know feeling good was good enough for me

Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

[Verse 2]

From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun

Yeah, 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 of my tomorrows for one single yesterday

To be holdin’ Bobby’s body next to mine

[Chorus]

Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose

Nothing, and that’s all that Bobby left me

Feeling good was easy Lord, when he sang the blues

You know feeling good was good enough for me

Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

[Bridge]

La da la la la, la da la la la da la

La da da la la la Bobby McGee yeah x3

[Outro]

Lord, I called him my lover, I called him my man

I said called him my lover just the best I can and come on

And and a Bobby oh, and a Bobby McGee yeah

Lo lo lo lo lo lo lo lo lo lo lo lo; Hey hey hey Bobby McGee, lord

La da la la la, la da la la la la la

Hey hey hey, Bobby McGee yeah
