OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headed for the train
Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained
Took us all the way to New Orleans

Circle left
Took my harp out of my dirty red bandana
Allemande left and swing and promenade
I'd trade all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Just to be again with Bobby McGee


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Plus, corner progression

1 & 3 gonna promenade halfway round the ring
Down the middle and square thru go 4
All the way around then go right & left thru
Veer left then circulate one spot
Do a half tag, follow your neighbor and spread
All 8 fold, gonna swing and promenade
Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

All four ladies chain across the ring
Roll away and circle to the left
All four ladies roll away, circle left
Allemande left and you weave the ring
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
Swing your ladies round and promenade
Feelin' good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee


TAG

Good enough for me and Bobby McGee

Me & Bobby McGee
 
 

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train
And I's feeling 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 of my dirty red bandana,
I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues.
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, now now.
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
You know feeling good was good enough for me,
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 done,
Hey Bobby baby kept me from the cold.

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

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing, that's all that Bobby left me, yeah,
But feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
Hey, feeling 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.
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 la, hey now Bobby 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 now, Bobby McGee, yeah.

Lord, I'm calling my lover, calling my man,
I said I'm calling my lover just the best I can,
C'mon, where is Bobby now, where is Bobby McGee, yeah,
Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, Lord!

Yeah! Whew!

Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee.

Lyrics by Kris Kristofferson.
Recorded by Janis Joplin.
