Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Those four ladies chain go straight across the ring
Turn and chain the ladies home again
Join hands and circle left go walking the ring
Left allemande then weave around the ring
*Freedom's just another word for nothing else to lose
Dosado then promenade the ring
Feeling good was easy Lord, when Bobby sang the blues
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I took my harp out of my dirty red bandana

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru 4 hands around you go
With the sides (heads) you make a right hand star
Heads (sides) star left in the middle, it's once around you go
Same two do the dosado
Swing thru, boys trade, and then turn thru
Left allemande, come back and promenade
**With those windshield wipers keeping time, Bobby holding hands with mine
We sang every song that driver knew


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Just to be once again with Bobby McGee

Me & Bobby McGee Lyrics ID: 109

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.
