  • Demo (take 5) 20 07 1970
  • S130 is not on. not that i'm playin' that great but still in all i oughta be able to hear it, y'know what i mean ?
  • Are you hearing it now ?
  • No. now. it's too loud. i can't play that good. am i havin' some of that texas accent back ?
  • I hope so.
  • But i always sound like this, man, i hear myself on tape i always sound like this.
  • Take 5.
  • God! shall i start that way ? ready ?
  • Over to you baby.
  • Busted flat in baton rouge, waiting for a train
  • And i's feelin' nearly as faded as my jeans.
  • Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
  • It rode us all the way in to new orleans.
  • I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,
  • An' i's playin' soft while bobby sang the blues, yeah.
  • Windshield wipers slapping time, i was holding bobby's hand in mine,
  • We sang every song that driver knew.
  • Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
  • Nothing don't mean nothing honey if it ain't free.
  • Yeah, an' feeling good was easy, lord, bobby sang the blues,
  • You know feeling good was good enough for me, hmm mm,
  • Good enough for me and my bobby mcgee.
  • From the kentucky coal mines to the california sun,
  • Bobby shared the secrets of my soul.
  • Through all kinds of weather, through everything that we done,
  • Said bobby baby, he kept me from the cold.
  • One day up near salinas, lord, i let him slip away,
  • But he was lookin' for that home and i hope he finds it.
  • But i'd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday
  • To be holdin' bobby's body next to mine.
  • Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose,
  • Nothing, that's all that bobby left me, yeah.
  • Feelin' good was easy, lord, bobby he sang the blues,
  • I said feeling good was good enough for me, hmm mm,
  • It's good enough for me and my bobby mcgee.
  • La la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la
  • La la la la la bobby mcgee.
  • La la la la la, la la la la la
  • La la la la la la, bobby mcgee.
  • La la la, la la la la la la,
  • La la la, la la la la la la,
  • Na na na na na na na na, bobby mcgee, yeah.
  • Na na na na na na na na, na na na na,
  • Na na na na na na na na, na na na na,
  • Hey now bobby lord, bobby mcgee, yeah.
  • Hell, i'm calling my lover, calling my man,
  • I said i'm calling my lover, i do the best i can,
  • I said now c'mon,bobby now, come on bobby mcgee, yeah.
  • Lordy, lordy, lordy, lordy, lordy, lordy, lordy lord
  • Hey, hey, hey, bobby mcgee, yeah!
  • That's when somebody else has to take over.
