Een Shoot the Moon site From the coalmines of Kentucky to the California sun Bobby shared the secrets of my soul Standin' right beside me through everythin' I done and every night she kept me from the cold Then somewhere near Salinas Lord, I let her slip away She was lookin' for the home I hope she'll find Well, I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free Feelin' good was easy Lord, when Bobby sang the blues And buddy, that was good enough for me Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free Feelin' good was easy Lord, when Bobby sang the blues And buddy, that was good enough for me Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee. Singer-songwriter (en acteur) Kris Kristofferson schreef veel nummers die door anderen uitgevoerd hits werden. Dat geldt ook voor Me and Bobby McGee. De eigenzinnige versie van Janis Joplin werd wereldberoemd. De uitvoering van Kristofferson zelf (op zijn eerste elpee, uit 1970) is een echte ‘country classic’, die geregeld voorbijkomt op een vijfde meezingwoensdag. laatst bijgewerkt op: 22 september 2021 ©  2021 Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the trains feelin' nearly faded as my jeans Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained Took us all the way to New Orleans Took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana and was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues With them windshield wipers slappin' time and Bobby clappin' hands we finally Sang up every song that driver knew. Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose And nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free Feelin' good was easy Lord, when Bobby sang the blues And buddy, that was good enough for me Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee
