Random fact about song
Fred Foster used a secretary's name as inspiration for the title. Her name was actually Bobbi McKee. By naming the character in the song "Bobby," it made sure a female singer could sing it without changing the name, since "Bobby" could refer to a man or woman. (thanks, Chris - Bristolville, OH)

Me and Bobby McGee lyrics:


Busted flat in Baton Rouge,
waitin' 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 to New Orleans

I pulled my harpoon out o' my dirty red bandana,
I was playin' soft
while Bobby sang the Blues, yaWindshield wipers slappin' time,
I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
We sang every song that driver knew, ya

Freedom's just another word
for nothin' left to lose
Nothin' don't mean nothin',
honey, if that ain't free, no no
Yeah, feelin' good was easy,
Lord, when he sang the Blues
You know feelin' good
was good enough for me, ya
Good enough for me
and my Bobby McGee

From the Kentucky coal mines
to the California sun
Hey, Bobby shared
the secrets of my Soul
Through all kinds of weather,
through everything that we'd done
Hey Bobby, baby,
kept me from the cold world

One day, oh, near Salinas,
Lord, I let him slip away
He 's lookin' for that home
and I hope he finds it
But I'd trade all o' my tomorrows
for one single yesterday
To be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine

Freedom's just another word
for nothin' left to lose
Nothin', and that's all
that Bobby left me, yeah
But a feelin' good was easy,
Lord, when he sang the Blues
Hey, feelin' good was good enough
for me, hmm hmm
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, ya
La la la la la, la la la la la, La la la la la, Bobby McGee, ya ya

La La la, la la la la la la, La La la la la la la la la,
Hey now Bobby, Lord now, Bobby McGee, yeah,
Na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na na na na
Hey now Bobby, Lord, my Bobby McGee, yeah

Lord, I'm callin' my lover, callin' my man
I said I'm callin' my lover, do the best I can
Come on, hey now Bobby, hey now Bobby McGee, yeah
Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord, oh
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, Lord!

Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord!
Hey, hey, hey -- Bobby McGee!
