Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for the train
Feeling nearly faded as my jeans

Left allemande the corner, turn a right hand 'round your own
The men star left and roll it 'round I sing
Turn the partner right and you go left allemande
Swing your girl and you promenade
I'd give all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru in the middle, get four hands around
To the corner, dosado
Swing thru and then, we're gonna spin the top
Boys move up and now, square thru, go to three
Chase right, and the corner swing
Swing the girl around and you promenade that ring
I'd give all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
From the coal mines of Kentucky to the California shore
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
She stood right there beside me and everything I'd done
And every night she kept me from the cold

Circle left
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
Left allemande and promenade
I'd give all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for the train
Feeling nearly faded as my jeans

Left allemande the corner, turn a right hand 'round your own
Left allemande, now, weave that ol' ring now
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
Swing your girl and you promenade now
I'd give all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday
Holdin' Bobby's body close to mine


TAG

Yes, holding Bobby's body close to mine

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.
