Me and Bobby McGee Lyrics

The wind dances through well-worn jeans, tossing dust onto a highway reaching hopefully toward New Orleans. A battered guitar case beats a lonely rhythm on the boxcar, echoing Janis Joplin’s restless spirit. In the realm of “Me and Bobby McGee,” love and loss waltz along the tracks, driven by inexpensive joys and the freedom of the open road.

Me and Bobby McGee Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin’ for a train
When I was feelin’ near as faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained
That rode us all the way in to New Orleans
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
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

[Chorus]
Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose
Nothin’, don’t mean nothin’, honey, if it ain’t free, no no
Yeah, 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 McGee

[Verse 2]
From the Kentucky coal mine to the California sun
Yeah, 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 one single yesterday
To be holdin’ Bobby’s body next to mine

[Chorus]
Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose
Nothin’, and that’s all that Bobby left me
Well feelin’ good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues
Hey feelin’ good was good enough for me, mhm
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee
