Me And Bobby McGee

Lyrics

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train
And I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained
It rode us all the way to New Orleans

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train

I love her raspy, soulful voice! I'm trying to grow my hair out like the hair she had, but I doubt I could even come close to her in that department!

I've always liked Janis, it's the only musician that I would claim to look like.
Remember dancing around with my Mom to Janis. Always brings back wonderful memories.

All true.
We lost Janis way too young..and Kris Kristofferso n is what Toby Keith and the rest of the new country posers are pretending to be! Legendary stuff.
MY #1 song!
s.w.temple
this gal fell off the stage in Denver 'in the round' must have been the dizzies
One of the greatest songs of all time. Hand down. Kristofferso n is awesome!!!
I heard Willy Nelson sing this live once - enchanting, of course. Must pay homage to its writers, Kris Kristofferso n and Fred Foster. Interesting how music is so inter-connec t e d across all kinds of genres.
You go Texas girl! Rock on J.J.!!
Killer song
...would not compare it to Here comes the Sun though (not sure about Hey Jude either)
By far my favorite JJ song...
