Me and Bobby McGee (featuring Jackson Browne on harmony)
written by Kristofferson/Foster
taken from the album "The Austin Sessions," and yes, it's a different key.
Corrections welcome.   tabbed 6/8/05

INTRO: Asus2   E   Asus2

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the train
Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans

Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained
Took us all the way to New Orleans

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
                        A               D
I was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues
                                              A                       A-Asus2
With them windshield wipers slappin time and Bobby clappin' hands we finally
E                               Asus2             A
Sang up every song that driver knew

D                                A        
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
Asus2-E                                     Asus2       A
       Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free
D                               A
Feelin' good was easy Lord when Bobby sang the blues
Asus2-E                                                                    Asus2
       Feelin' good was good enough for me, good enough for me and Bobby McGee


From the coal mines of Kentucky to the California sun
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul

Standin' right beside me Lord thru everything I done
Every night she kept me from the cold

Then somewhere Salinas Lord I let her slip away
                A                   D
Lookin' for the home I hope she'll find
And I'd trade all my tomorrows for a 
Single yesterday
Asus2-E                             Asus2    A
       Holdin' Bobby's body next to mine


Asus2                                      E
La la  la la la   la la la me and Bobby McGee yeah
La la la    la la la la la la la  la la la la la me and Bobby McGee

FADE  (doin' the "la la la" part as Janis Joplin's "Bobby-Bobby-Bobby McGee rap)
