Ah one ah two

Ah one two three four

Well I was busted flat in Baton Rouge

Headin' for the train

Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans

Oh Bobby thumbed a diesle down just before it rained

Lord it took us all the way to New Orleans

Pull my ol' harp out of my dirty red bandanna

Blowing while Bobby sang the blues

With them windshield wipers slappin' time

And Bobby clappin hands with mine

We finally sang up every song that driver knew

Chorus

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose

And nothing ain't worth nothing but it's free

Feelin' good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the blues

Lord that was good enough for me

Yeah Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

From the coal mine of Kentucky to the California sun

Ah Bobby shared the secrets of my soul

She was standin' around the sun below

Through everything I done  

And every night she kept me from the cold

And then somewhere near Salinas

Lord I let her slip away

Lookin' for the home I hope she'll find

And I'd trade of all my tommorrows for just a single yesterday

Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine

Chorus

Freedom's just another for nothing left to lose

And nothing ain't worth nothing but it's free

Feelin' good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the blues

But that was good enough for me

Yeah it was..

Good enough for me and a Bobby McGee

yeah

Ladi Da Di Da Ladi Da Di Da.........
