G         G/D       G    G/D    G          G/D       G     G/D
   Busted flat in Baton Rouge,     headin' for the train,
G           G/D     G   G/D     D     D/A  D/C    D    D/A
   Feeling nearly faded as my jeans,   /   /   |  /  /  /  /  |
  D     D/A       D    D/A    D            D/A       D     D/A
Bobby thumbed a diesel down,     just be - fore it rained,
D          D/A      D     D/F#       G    (G/E) (G/D) (G/B)
   Took us all the way to New Or - leans!


G      G/D       G       G/D    G    G/D         G    G/D
I took my har - poon out of my dirty red ban - danna,
           G    G/D        G    G/B        C     C/E
And was blowing sad while Bobby sang the blues,
C   C/E           C        C/E      C     C/E       G         G/D      G
    With those windshield wipers slapping time, and...Bobby clapping hands,
     G/D     D     D/A    D         D/F#   G   (G/E)   G/D  (G) (G/A) (G/B)
We finally sung up every song that driver knew!      |  /    /    /    /   |


C            C/E        C    C/E       G          G/D      G   G/D
    Freedom, just a - nother word for...  nothing left to lose,
  D     D/A            D     D/F#      G     G/D      G   (G) (G/A) (G/B)
Nothin' ain't worth nothin', but it's free,        |  /    /    /    /   |
C           C/E       C    C/E        G        G/D        G      G/D
   Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when... Bobby sang the Blues,
D          D/A       D        D/A      D    D/A      D     D/A
   Feelin' good was good e - nough for me,        |  /  /   /  /  |
D           D/A       D      D/F#        G    G/D    G      G/D
   Good e - nough for me and Bobby Mc - Gee!      |  /  /   /  /  |


   A     A/E       A    A/E      A         A/E        A    A/E
|  /  /   /  /  |      From the coal mines of Ken - tucky,
         A     A/E    A     A/E
To the Cali - fornia sun,      
A          A/E        A     A/E    E    E/B     E     E/B
   Bobby shared the secrets of my soul,      |  /  /   /  /  |
E            E/B         E      E/B           E          E/B        E   E/B
   Standing right be - side me, Lord, through...every - thing I've done,
E          E/B        E     E/G#      A    A/E     A     A/E
    Every night she kept me from the cold,      |  /  /   /  /  |


        A      A/E        A     A/E      A       A/E      A    A/E
Then somewhere near Sa - linas, Lord, I let her slip a - way,
A             A/E      A       A/C#        D      D/A
    Searching for the home, I heard, she owned,
D   D/A      D      D/A        D     D/A    A         A/E      A   A/E
    And I'd give all my to - morrows for a... single yester - day
E           E/B     E    E/G#     A     A/E     A   (A) (A/B)(A/C#)
   Holding Bobby's body close to mine!       |  /    /    /    /   |


D           D/A        D    D/A      A          A/E       A    A/E
   Freedom, just a - nother word for... nothin' left to lose,

    Nothin' ain't worth nothin', but it's free,       |  /    /    /    /   |
