ME AND BOBBY McGEE (Kris Kristofferson)
---------------------------------------
[each chord is the same length; that's either one measure or
  half a measure, depending on how you look at it.]
[For the intro, strum 2 whole-beat G chords, then 4 half-beat C chords.]

G - C   G - C   G - C   G - C
[intro]

G               G          G                G
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train
         G                G        D7      D7
When I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans
D7               D7        D7               D7
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained
     D7              D7            G - C    G
And rode us all the way into New Orleans

  G             G             G             G
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
    G                   G7              C    C
I's playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues
C                   C                 G                G
Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
D7             D7               D7   D7
We sang every song that driver knew

C                C             G                 G
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
D7                 D7                          G    G
Nothin', it ain't nothin' honey, if it ain't free
    C                C              G                 G
And feelin' good was easy, lord, oh, when he sang the blues
         D7               D7               D7  D7
You know feelin' good was good enough for me
D7               D7               G    G    A    A
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

         A         A                A          A
>From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun
     A                 A          E7      E7
Yeah Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
        E7            E7              E7             E7
Through all kinds of weather, through everything we done
     E7         E7               A     A
Yeah Bobby baby kept me from the cold

    A              A            A                 A
One day up near Salinas, lo-ord, I let him slip away
     A                 A7                 D        D
He's lookin' for that home and I hope he finds it
         D               D              A            A
Well I'd trade all my tomorrows for one single yesterday
      E7               E7           E7   E7
To be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine

D                D             A                 A
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
E7                   E7             A       A
Nothin', and that's all that Bobby left me
      D                D          A                     A
Well, feelin' good was easy, lo-o-ord, when he sang the blues
    E7               E7               E7  E7
And feelin' good was good enough for me
E7               E7               A         A
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee yeah
