My new band is doing a cover of Janis Joplin's "Me & Bobby Mcgee" Anybody have tabs for this?
c g f billy
Seriously, you should be able to pick this one off the recording in 10 minutes or less. Trust your ears.
I would only add to what Billy stated:
c g f (repeat)
The fill you add is what makes you a musician.
Actually, to give proper credit... that is a Kris Kristofferson song, and it was first made into a hit song by Roger Miller.
Don't forget the song modulates a step up to A.
The correct key for the Janis version (sorry the notes should be superscripted, but the cut and paste doesn't apply here...).
1. GBusted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train,
I was feeling near as faded as my Djeans.
DBobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained,
and rode us all the way to New OrGleans.C-G
GI pulled my harpoon out of my diry red bandana
I's playing soft while Bobby sang the Cblues.
Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was Gholdin' Bobby's hand in mine
DWe sang every song that driver knew.
Chorus CFreedom's just another word for Gnothin' left to lose,
DNothin', it ain't nothin' honey if it ain't Gfree
And Cfeelin' good was easy, Lord Gwhen she sang the blues
You know Dfeelin' good was good enough for me,
DGood enough for me and Bobby McGGee.
2. AFrom the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun,
Yeah ABobby shared the secrets of my Esoul
Through Eall kinds of weather, through everything we done
Yeah EBobby baby helped me through the Acold.
One Aday up near Salinas, lo-ord, I let her slip away
She's looking for that home and I hope she Dfinds it,
Well I'd Dtrade all of my tomorrows for one Asingle yesterday
To be Eholding Bobby's body next to mine.
Chorus DFreedom's just another word for Anothin' left to lose,
ENothin', and that's all that Bobby left Ame.
Well Dfeelin' good was easy, Lord Awhen she sang the blues
And Efeelin' good was good enough for me,
EGood enough for me and Bobby McAGee.
