By: Fred Foster & Kris Kristofferson[1]



Performed: Roger Miller, Gordon Lightfoot, Janis Joplin

"If it sounds country man, that's what it is, its a country song"
C
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, heading for the train
* G7
Feeling nearly faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained 
* C
Took us all the way to New Orleans
I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna 
C7 * F
And was blowing sad while Bobby sang the blues
* C
With them windshield wipers slapping time, and Bobby clapping hands
* G7 * C
We finally sang up every song that driver knew
 
F * C *
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
G7 * C *
Nothing ain't worth nothing but it's free
F * C *
Feeling good was easy lord when Bobby sang the blues
G7
Feeling good was good enough for me
C
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee
 
C
From the coal mines of Kentucky, to the California sun
* G7
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Standing right beside me Lord, through everything I've done 
C
Every night she kept me from the cold
Then somewhere near Salinas Lord I let her slip away 
C7 F
Looking for the home I hope she'll find
C
And I'd trade all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday
G7 * C
Holding Bobby's body next to mine
 
F * C *
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
G7 * C *
Nothing left is all she left for me
F * C *
Feeling good was easy lord when Bobby sang the blues
G7
And buddy that was good enough for me
C
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee
