Me and Bobby Gee
Kris Kristofferson Lyrics


One, two, three, four

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the train
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 harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
I was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues
With them windshield wipers slappin' time and Bobby clappin' hands
We finally sang off 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
Good enough for 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 through everything I done
And every night she kept me from the cold

Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away
Lookin' for the home I hope she'll find
And I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's next close 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
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

La-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, me and Bobby McGee, yeah
La-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la, me and Bobby McGee

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the train,

Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans.

Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained;

Took us all the way to New Orleans.

I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,

And was blowing sad while Bobby sang the blues.

With them windshield wipers slappin' time,

And Bobby clappin' hands,

We finally sang up every song that driver knew.





Freedom's just another word for nothing' 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.





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've done,

Every night she kept me from the cold.

Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away,

Lookin' for the home I hope she'll find.

And I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday,

Holdin' Bobby's body next to mine.





Freedom's just another word for nothing' left to lose:

Nothin' left is all she left for me.

Feeling good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues.

Buddy, that was good enough for me;

Good enough for me and Bobby McGee.





La da da la la na na na

La da da na na.

La la la da, Me and Bobby McGee.

La la la la la da da da

La la la da da.

La la la da, Me and Bobby McGee.



La la la la la na na na

La la la da da.

La da da da, Me and Bobby McGee.

La la la la la da da da

God he wrote some of the best songs!! So deep and so emotional!!

@buster who is Pearl? If you had said Janis Joplin I would have believed you. But, Kris wrote that song and he put his heart and soul into that song.

buster

but pearl sang it better

Ruby Courey

Kris did that because he honest and wrote and played with his heart,

Fjordavy

Funny to think that this old country song was inspired by Fellini’s La Strada. Talk about emotional. That movie’s too hard to watch
