Me And Bobby McGee:Janis Joplin.
#1 in 1971.

#1.
G
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train.
                                      D
And I was feeling near as faded as my jeans
D
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained..
                              G
it rode us all the way to New Orleans.
G
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,
                                        C
I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues.
C                                      G
Windshield wipers slapping time, I was holding Bobby`s 

hand in mine..
   D                           G
we sang every song that driver knew.

CHORUS:
C                                 G
Freedom is just another word, for nothing left to lose.
D                                              G   G7
Nothing don`t mean nothing, Honey, if it ain`t free.
    C                            G
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues.
         D                                D7
You know feeling good was good enough for me..
D7                              G
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

#2.
A
From the Kentucky coal mines, to the California sun..
                               E
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul.
E
Through all kinds of weather, through everything we'd done.
                              A
Bobby, baby, kept me from the cold.
A
One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away..
                                         D
He`s looking for that home and I hope he finds it.
D                                         A
But I`d trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday..
      E                                 E7
to be holding Bobby`s body next to mine.

CHORUS:
D                                 A
Freedom is just another word, for nothing left to lose.
E                                              A   A7
Nothing don`t mean nothing, Honey, if it ain`t free.
    D                            A
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues.
         E                                E7
You know feeling good was good enough for me..
E7                              A
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

OUTRO:
A                                 E
La la la, la la la la.......Bobby McGee.
E                                 A
La la la, la la la la.......Bobby McGee.
A                                          E
La la la, la la la la.......hey, now Bobby McGee, yeah.
E                                     A
Na na na na na na......hey, now Bobby McGee.

(Ad lib the rest.)
