G  C 4x  

G               
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train
                                      D   D7
When It's feelin' near as faded as my jeans
D
Bobby thumbed a diesel down Just before it rained
                                   G  C G
And rode us all the way into New Orleans


I pulled my harpoon out Of my dirty red bandana
                        G7             C    
It's playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues
                                       G               
Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
                               D7
We sang every song that driver knew

C                               G               
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
D7                                           G    
Nothin', it ain't nothin' honey, if it ain't free
    C                                G                 
And feelin' good was easy, lord, Oh, when he sang the blues
         D7                             
You know feelin' good was good enough for me
                                  G   A   
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

         A                                   
From the Kentucky coal mines To the California sun
                                    E7  
Yeah Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
        
Through all kinds of weather, Through everything we done
                                 A     
Yeah Bobby baby kept me from the cold

    
One day up near Salinas, lo-ord, I let him slip away
                      A7                 D        
He's lookin' for that home and I hope he finds it
                                        A            
Well I'd trade all my tomorrows for one single yesterday
      E7               
To be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine

D                               A                 
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
E7                                      A   
Nothin', and that's all that Bobby left me

      D                           A                     
Well, feelin' good was easy, lo-o-ord, when he sang the blues
    E7               
and feelin' good was good enough for me
                                  A         
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee yeah
