Me and Bobby McGee
La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la me and Bobby McGee

Busted flat in Baton Rouge
Headin' 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 pulled my ol' har'poon out of my dirty red bandana
And was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues
With those windshield whipers 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
Feeling good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the blues
Feeling good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee.

La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la 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 Lord through everything I done
Every night he kept me from the cold.

Then somewhere near Salinas Lord I let him slip away
Searching for the home I hope he'll find
And I'd give all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
Nothin' ain't worth nothin' 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.

La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la (Bobby McGee)
La la la la la la me and Bobby McGee...
