[[Image:Me and Bobby McGee - Roger Miller.jpg|thumb|200px|right|Original album cover from Roger Miller]]"'''Me and Bobby McGee'''" is a song written by [[Kris Kristofferson]] and [[Fred Foster]], originally performed by [[Roger Miller]], but best remembered for [[Janis Joplin]]'s cover of the song, recorded a few days before her death in [[October]] [[1970]].
 
A '''Me and Bobby McGee'''" című dalt [[Kris Kristofferson]] és [[Fred Foster]], írta és legelőször Roger Miller adta elő, de talán a legemlékezetesebb feldolgozást [[Janis Joplin]] készítette , néhány nappal a halála előtt 1970 októberében.
Some sources state that [[Gordon Lightfoot]] issued the first recorded version; another story tells how Kristofferson popped his head into the studio with freshly written verses as [[Roger Miller]] was recording the song. Regardless, Miller was the first artist to have a hit with the song, peaking with it at #12 on the US country charts in 1969. Lightfoot's version was a top 40 hit in his native Canada in 1970.
 
Néhány forrás szerint Gordon Lightfoot vette fel először ezt a dalt, mások szerint Kris épp akkor lett kész néhány verszakkal mielőtt Roger Miller felénekelte volna. Akárhogyan is, az tény hogy Roger Miller ért el először sikereket a dallal: 1969-ben az amerikai listákon a 12 helyet szerezte meg.
By far the best known recording is by [[Janis Joplin]] on her [[1971]] ''[[Pearl (album)|Pearl]]'' album. Joplin's version topped the charts to become only the second posthumous number one single in [[rock & roll]] history (the first was "[[(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay]]" by [[Otis Redding]]). (It was also the only number one single Joplin had during her career.) In 2004, the Janis Joplin version of this song was ranked #148 on [[Rolling Stone]]'s list of [[the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time]].
 
Az egyik legismertebb verzió az 1971-ben felvett [[Janis Joplin]] ''Pearl'' című albumáról származik. 2004-ben a Rolling Stone magazin a ' Minden idők 500 legjobb dala' listán Janis adaptációját a 148. helyre sorolta.
Kristofferson performed the song live at the [[Isle of Wight Festival 1970]] and a CD and DVD of the event were issued 30 years later as ''Message to Love: The Isle of Wight Festival 1970''.
 
== Me and Bobby McGee: a dalszöveg ==
 
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the train,
Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans.
Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained;
Took us all the way to New Orleans.
I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,
And was blowing sad while Bobby sang the blues.
With them windshield wipers slappin' time,
And Bobby clappin' hands,
We finally sang up every song that driver knew.
 
Freedom's just another word for nothing' left to lose:
Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free.
Feeling good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues.
Feeling good was good enough for me;
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee.
 
From the coal mines of Kentucky to the California sun,
Bobby shared the secrets of my soul.
Standin' right beside me, Lord, through everything I've done,
Every night she kept me from the cold.
Then somewhere near Salinas, Lord, I let her slip away,
Lookin' for the home I hope she'll find.
And I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday,
Holdin' Bobby's body next to mine.
 
Freedom's just another word for nothing' left to lose:
Nothin' left is all she left for me.
Feeling good was easy, Lord, when Bobby sang the blues.
Buddy, that was good enough for me;
Good enough for me and Bobby McGee.
 
La da da la la na na na
La da da na na.
La la la da, Me and Bobby McGee.
La la la la la da da da
La la la da da.
La la la da, Me and Bobby McGee...
 
In the original version of the song, Bobby is a woman; Janis Joplin, who was a lover and a friend of Kristofferson's from the beginning of her career to her death, changed the gender and a few of the lyrics in her cover. It was the last song she recorded before her untimely death. Kristofferson states he did not write this song for her, but the song is associated with her. Especially, he has said, in the line, "Somewhere near [[Salinas, California|Salinas]], Lord, I let her slip away."
