Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
Busted flat in Baton Rouge waiting for a train
Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans

Those men star right and you turn it one time around
Left allemande, weave the ring
Feelin's just another word for nothing left to lose
Dosado and promenade
I'd give all of my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Feelin' good was good enough for me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade and go half around the ring
Walk in the middle, do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel full around then sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and then a right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel, those centers pass thru
Swing the corner lady, promenade
I'd give all of my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Feelin' good was good enough for me


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
From the coal mines of Kentucky, to the California shore
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
And she stood beside me in every thing I done
Every night she kept me from the cold

Circle left
And somewhere near Salinas I watched her slip away
Left allemande, come back and promenade
I'd give all of my tomorrows for just one yesterday
Feelin' good was good enough for me


TAG

Feelin' good was good enough for me
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.
