Kris Kristofferson - Me and Bobby Mcgee Chords

G - C   G - C   G - C   G - C   
{intro}   
   
G               G          G                G   
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for a train   
 G                G        D7      D7   
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   
Took us all the way into New Orleans.   
  G             G             G             G   
I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana   
            G                   G7              C    C   
And was playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues.   
                  C                   C                 G                G   
With them windshield wipers slappin' time and Bobby clappin' time, we fin'lly   
D7              D7               D7   D7   
Sang up every song that driver knew   
   
C                C             G                 G   
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose.   
D7                 D7                            G    G   
Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free.  
    C                C                      G                 G   
Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues.   
         D7               D7               D7  D7   
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 coal mines of Kentuckyto the California sun   
     A                 A          E7      E7   
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul.   
        E7            E7              E7             E7   
Standin' right beside me, Lord, through everything I'd done,   
     E7         E7                    A     A   
Every night she kept me from the cold.   
    A              A            A                 A   
Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away   
     A                 A7                 D        D   
Lookin' for the home and I hope she'll find.  
         D               D              A            A   
And I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday   
      E7               E7           E7   E7   
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' left is all she left for me.  
      D                D          A                     A   
Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues.   
    E7               E7               E7  E7   
Buddy, that was good enough for me,   
E7               E7               A         A   
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee.   
   
      A         A          A              A   
La da da, la da, la da da da da da da   
A              A              E7      E7   
La da da da me and Bobby McGee.   
E7             E7     E7             E7   
La da da da da da da da la da da da da,  
E7             E7           A       A   
La da da da me and Bobby McGee   
   
      A           A                A                A   
La da da, la da, la da da da da da da da  
A          A                    E7       E7   
La da da da me and Bobby McGee.   
       E7             E7         E7              E7   
La da da da da da da, la da da da da,  
E7         E7                    A    A   
La da da da me and Bobby McGee.
