It was about 35 years ago. I was about 22 and real pretty. But I was busted flat in Baton Rouge and hanging out with a smooth talking harmonica player in faded jeans. We decided to head for the trains but it got cloudy and was about to rain so I thumbed a diesel down and we got in for the ride. I started singing some old blues song and this guy takes his harp out of his dirty red bandana and plays along.

Anyway, we travelled around for a while but he kept going on and on about freedom being just another word for nothing left to lose. Finally, we were somewhere near Salinas and I couldn't take him anymore so I decided to slip away. I told him I was going to search for a home.

I ended up as a nun in a cloistered convent and was cut off from the world until about six months ago when I decided to come back to reality.

What di I find out? This turns out to be some kind of songwriter who tells my story and gets rich and famous from it.

Me I got nothing left to lose. But at leat I'm free.

Sincerely,

Bobbie McGee

Oh go sell your story to Jerry Springer. I've got to try to get my life back from that guy who draws that Simpson kid.

Smell ya' later.

Did you do anything in the last 35 years? I was looking for something to sing about...

Oh no, please.
Not 'Bobbie McGee, the sequel', or, heaven forbid, 'the prequel', except if Janis Joplin gets to sing it.
