Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain & go straight across the ring
Join your hands, circle to the left around that way
Well, now rollaway, I say, and circle left around today
Rollaway and weave the ring
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose
Dosado around..promenade..sing the blues
Feelin' good is easy when Bobby sang the blues
Good enuff for me and Bobby McGee


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

The heads (sides) go up & back..pass thru you do
You turn back, star thru and veer to the left
Now wheel and deal, dive thru, pass thru
Square thru 3/4 around and then trade by
Swing corner lady and go left allemande
Come back one, dosado, and promenade the land
I'd trade all my tomorrows for just one yesterday
(Feeling good is easy when Bobby sang the blues)
To be once again with Bobby McGee
(Feeling good is easy when Bobby sang the blues)

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.
