[G]Busted flat in B[G]aton Rouge,[G] waitin' for a tr[G]ain
When I's [G]feelin' near as f[G]aded as m[D7]y jeans  [D]
[D7]Bobby thumbed a d[D7]iesel down[D7] just before it r[D7]ained
And r[D7]ode us all the w[D7]ay into New Or[G]lean[C]s    

I [G]pulled my harp[G]oon out of my [G]dirty red band[G]ana
I's [G]playin' soft while B[G7]obby sang the bl[C]ues   
[C]Windshield wipers sl[C]appin' time, I was[G] holdin' Bobby's [G]hand in mine
[D7]We sang every s[D7]ong that driver k[D7]new   [D]

[C]Freedom's just an[C]other word for[G] nothin' left to l[G]ose
[D7]Nothin', it ain't n[D7]othin' honey, if it ain't fr[G]ee    
And [C]feelin' good was [C]easy, lord, oh,[G] when he sang the [G]blues
You know [D7]feelin' good was [D7]good enough for m[D7]e  [D]
[D7]Good enough for m[D7]e and my Bobby Mc[G]Gee   [G]   [A]   

From the [A]Kentucky c[A]oal mines to the [A]California [A]sun
Yeah [A]Bobby shared the s[A]ecrets of m[E7]y soul   [E]
Through [E7]all kinds of w[E7]eather, through [E7]everything we d[E7]one
Yeah [E7]Bobby baby [E7]kept me from the [A]cold   

One [A]day up near Sal[A]inas, lo-ord,[A] I let him slip aw[A]ay
He's [A]lookin' for that h[A7]ome and I hope he f[D]inds it   
Well I'd [D]trade all my tom[D]orrows for one [A]single yester[A]day
To be [E7]holdin' Bobby's b[E7]ody next to m[E7]ine   [E]

[D]Freedom's just an[D]other word for[A] nothin' left to l[A]ose
[E7]Nothin', and that's a[E7]ll that Bobby l[A]eft me   
Well, [D]feelin' good was [D]easy, lo-o-[A]ord, when he sang the [A]blues
And [E7]feelin' good was [E7]good enough for m[E7]e  [E]
[E7]Good enough for m[E7]e and my Bobby Mc[A]Gee yeah
