(Kris Kristofferson)

	  		G - C   G - C   G - C   G - C  
{intro}  
  
G               G          G                G  
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for a train  
 G                G        D7      D7  
feelin' near as faded as my jeans,  
D7               D7        D7               D7  
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained.  
 D7              D7            G - C    G  
Took us all the way into New Orleans.  
  G             G             G             G  
I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana  
            G                   G7              C    C  
And was playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues.  
                  C                   C                 G                G  
With them windshield wipers slappin' time and Bobby clappin' time, we fin'lly  
D7              D7               D7   D7  
Sang up every song that driver knew

C C G G Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose. D7 D7 G G Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free. C C G G Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues. D7 D7 D7 D7 Feelin' good was good enough for me, D7 D7 G G A A Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

A A A A From the coal mines of Kentuckyto the California sun A A E7 E7 Bobby shared the secrets of my soul. E7 E7 E7 E7 Standin' right beside me, Lord, through everything I'd done, E7 E7 A A Every night she kept me from the cold. A A A A Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away A A7 D D Lookin' for the home and I hope she'll find. D D A A And I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday E7 E7 E7 E7 holdin' Bobby's body next to mine.
