Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train,
when I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans,
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
and rode us all the way into New Orleans.

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
I's playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues.
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', it ain't nothin' honey, if it ain't free.
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 McGee.

From the Kentucky coal mines 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,
Well, I'd trade all my tomorrows for one single yesterday,
to be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine.

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,
and feelin' good was good enough for me,
good enough for me and my Bobby McGee, yeah.

La da da, la da daa, la da daa da daa da daa,
la da da da daa dadada Bobby McGee-ah.
Laa li daa da daa daa, la da daa da daa,
laa la laa la daada Bobby McGee-ah, yeah,

Lord, I called him my lover, I called him my man,
I said I called him my lover, did the best I can,
c'mon, hey now Bobby now, hey now Bobby McGee, yeah.
Lo lo Lord, a Lord, a Lord, a Lord, a Lord, a Lord, a Lord, oh
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, Lord.
