D
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train,
                           A
Feeling nearly faded as my jeans,
A
Bobby flagged a diesel down, just before it rained,
                             D
Took us all the way to New Orleans.

  D
I took my harp out of my dirty red bandanna,
                        D7             G
I was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues,
G                               D
Windshield wipers slappin' time, Bobby clappin' hands,
          A                                D       D7
We fin'ly sang near every song that driver knew.

G                               D
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to do.
A                                    D      D7
Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free.
G                                D
Feelin' good was easy Lord, when Bobby sang the blues.
A
Feelin' good was good enough for me,
A                              D
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee.

From the coal mines of Kentucky to the California sun,
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul,
Standing right beside me, Lord, through everything I done,
Bobby's body kept me from the cold.

Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away,
Lookin' for that home, I hope she finds it,
And I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holding Bobby's body close to mine.

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose.
Nothin' was all she left for me.
Feelin' good was easy Lord, when Bobby sang the blues.
Feelin' good was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee.

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to do.
Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free.
Feelin' good was easy Lord, when Bobby sang the blues.
Feelin' good was good enough for me, good enough for me and Bobby McGee.

About the artist behind Me And Bobby Mcgee Chords:

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in the San Francisco Bay Area.[1] The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, jazz, psychedelia, space rock[2][3] and gospel—and for live performances of long musical improvisation.[1][4] "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists."[5]

The Grateful Dead's fans, some of whom followed the band from concert to concert for years, are known as Deadheads and have been renowned for their dedication to the band's music.[1][4] Many fans referred to the band simply as "the Dead". As of 2003, the remaining band members who had been touring under the name "The Other Ones" changed their official group name to "The Dead". Deadheads continue to use the nickname to refer to all versions of the band.[6]

Their musical influences varied widely; in concert recordings or on record albums one can hear psychedelic rock (in the late sixties), the blues, rock nuggets, country-western, bluegrass, country-rock, and although they rarely played jazz music, the band certainly borrowed for their music the kind of long improvisatory sequences that jazz artists such as Charles Mingus and John Coltrane perfected in the 1950s and 1960s. These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world."[7]
