Me and Bobby McGee
Busted flat in Baton Rouge
Waitin' for a train
Feelin' near as faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down
Just before a rain
Towed us all the way to New Orleans

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
I was playing soft
While Bobby sang the blues
Windshield wipers 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
Feelin' good was easy, Lord
When Bobby sang the blues
Feelin' good was good enough for me, mm, hmm
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

From the coal mines of Kentucky
To the California sun
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Through all kinds of weather
Everything we done
Every night he kept me from the cold

Somewhere near Salinas, Lord
I let him slip away
Lookin' for that home I hope he finds
I'd 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' ain't worth nothin' but it's free
Feelin' good was easy, Lord
When Bobby sang the blues
Feelin' good was good enough for me, uh huh
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

Ny, ny ny ny, ny ny ny
Ny, ny ny ny, ny
Ny ny ny, me and Bobby McGee
Ny, ny ny ny, ny ny ny
Ny, ny ny ny, ny
La la ny, me and Bobby McGee

Ny, ny, ny, ny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny
Ny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny
Ny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, nigh
Lah-ly, lah-ly, lah-ly, lah-ly
Lah-ly, lah-ly, lah-ly, lah-ly
Lah-ly, lah-ly, lah-ly, Bobby McGee
