Me And Bobby Mcgee – Janis Joplin | EZ Song Lyrics: From Lyrics to Song in 60

Sing & Accompany on Piano w/EZ Song Lyrics & Piano Tabs

 

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin’ for a train
And I’s feelin’ near as faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down,
just before it rained
It rode us all the way to New Orleans

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red
bandanna
I was playin’ soft while Bobby sang the blues,
yeah
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’, don’t mean nothin’ hon’ if it ain’t free,
no no
And, feelin’ good was easy, Lord,
when he sang the blues
You know, feelin’ good was good enough for me
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGhee

From the Kentucky coal mine to
the California sun
There Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Through all kinds of weather,
through everything we done
Yeah, Bobby baby kept me from the cold

One day up near Salinas, Lord,
I let him slip away
He’s lookin’ for that home, and I hope he finds it
But, I’d trade all of my tomorrows,
for a single yesterday
To be holdin’ Bobby’s body next to mine

Freedom’s just another word for nothin’
left to lose
Nothin’, that’s all that Bobby left me, yeah
But, feelin’ good was easy, Lord,
when he sang the blues
Hey, feelin’ good was good enough for me,
mm-hmm
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGhee

La da da
La da da da
La da da da da da da da
La da da da da da da da
Bobby McGhee, yeah

La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da
Bobby McGhee, yeah

La da La la da da la da da la da da
La da da da da da da da da
Hey, my Bobby
Oh, my Bobby McGhee, yeah

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Hey, my Bobby
Oh, my Bobby McGhee, yeah

Well, I call him my lover, call him my man
I said,
I call him my lover did the best I can, c’mon
Hey now, Bobby now
Hey now, Bobby McGhee, yeah

Woo
La da, la da, la da, la da, la da, la da, la da, la la
Hey, hey, hey Bobby McGhee, yeah
La da, la da, la da, la da, la da, la da, la da, la
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGhee, yeah

Lyrics:

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train
And I's feeling nearly as faded as my jeans.
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
It rode us all the way to New Orleans.

I pulled my harp from and my dirty red bandanna,
I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues.
Windshield wipers slapping time, I was holding Bobby's hand in mine,
We sang every song that driver knew.

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing don't mean nothing honey if it ain't free, now now.
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
You know feelinggood was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.
