Intro G - C - G (Intro is Kinda Boom-chuck style)

[Verse]
G               G          G              
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a 
  G 
train
         G                G       
Feelin' near as faded as 
 D7      D7 
my jeans
D7               D7        D7           
Bobby flagged a diesel down just before 
    D7 
it rained
     D7              D7            G  C  G
Took us all the way into New Orleans
  G
  G             G             G         
I took my harp on out of my dirty red 
    G 
bandana
    G                   G7            
I was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the 
  C    C 
blues
C                   C              
With them windshield wipers slappin' time,  
   G                G 
Bobby clappin' hands
D7             D7               D7   D7
We sang every song that driver knew

[Chorus]
C                C             G        
Freedom's just another word for nothin' 
         G 
left to do 
D7                 D7                  
Nothin', ain't worth nothin'
        G  C  G
but it's free
    C                C              G     
Feelin' good was easy, lord, when 
            G 
Bobby sang the blues
         D7               D7              D7  D7 
Feelin' good was good enough for me 
D7               D7               G  C  G  
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee
  G    G

[Verse]
         G         G           G      
From the coal mines of Kentucky to the 
         G
California sun
     G                 G          D7    D7  
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
        D7            D7              
Standing right beside me, Lord,  
D7             D7 
in everything I done,
     D7         D7               G  C  G
Bobby's body kept me from the cold
    G              G            G      
Then somewhere near Salinas, lord, I let 
           G 
her slip away
     G                 D7                
Lookin' for that home and I hope she 
 C        C 
finds it
         C               C              
And I'd trade all my tomorrows for one 
G            G
single yesterday
      D7               D7           D7   
Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine


[Chorus]
C                C             G        
Freedom's just another word for nothin' 
         G
left to lose 
D7                   D7            G  C  G  
Nothin', was all she left for me 

      C                C          G    
Feelin' good was easy, lo-o-ord, 
                 G 
when Bobby sang the blues
    D7               D7               D7  
Feelin' good was good enough for me

D7               D7               G  C  G 
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee
