Road Song #3

worldsgreatestmusicdad writes...

O.K., I'm aiming for ten. This Kris Kristofferson song is one that has probably inspired many others. Janis makes it her own and it seems to work just as well with Bobby being a man. Some deceptively simple yet very memorable lines: 'Freedom's just another word for nothin left to lose.' 'I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday/Holdin Bobby's body next to mine.'

If you don't have Kristofferson's own version:

Kris Kristofferson - Me and Bobby McGee (Amazon)
