Busted flat in Baton Rouge
Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans
Just before it rained
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna
While Bobby sang the blues
I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

When he sang the blues
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee
From Kentucky coal mines
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
Through everything I done
Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord
Lookin' for the home I hope he'll find it
For one single yesterday
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

When he sang the blues
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee
