Este paisano es el autor de la canción, por cierto. De todas formas la versión más tremebunda seguramente sea la de Janis Joplin. Os la pongo ahora subtitulada al español, para que os hagáis una idea de lo que dice la letra. Si no conocéis a Janis Joplin, por cierto, este es buen momento para ello.

ME AND BOBBY McGEE (Kris Kristofferson)
---------------------------------------
[each chord is the same length; that's either one measure or
  half a measure, depending on how you look at it.]
[For the intro, strum 2 whole-beat G chords, then 4 half-beat C chords.]

G - C   G - C   G - C   G - C
[intro]

G               G          G                G
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin' for a train
         G                G        D7      D7
When I's feelin' near as faded as my jeans
D7               D7        D7               D7
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained
     D7              D7            G - C    G
And rode us all the way into New Orleans

  G             G             G             G
I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
    G                   G7              C    C
I's playin' soft while Bobby sang the blues
C                   C                 G                G
Windshield wipers slappin' time, I was holdin' Bobby's hand in mine
D7             D7               D7   D7
We sang every song that driver knew

C                C             G                 G
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
D7                 D7                          G    G
Nothin', it ain't nothin' honey, if it ain't free
    C                C              G                 G
And feelin' good was easy, lord, oh, when he sang the blues
         D7               D7               D7  D7
You know feelin' good was good enough for me
D7               D7               G    G    A    A
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

         A         A                A          A
>From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun
     A                 A          E7      E7
Yeah Bobby shared the secrets of my soul
        E7            E7              E7             E7
Through all kinds of weather, through everything we done
     E7         E7               A     A
Yeah Bobby baby kept me from the cold

    A              A            A                 A
One day up near Salinas, lo-ord, I let him slip away
     A                 A7                 D        D
He's lookin' for that home and I hope he finds it
         D               D              A            A
Well I'd trade all my tomorrows for one single yesterday
      E7               E7           E7   E7
To be holdin' Bobby's body next to mine

D                D             A                 A
Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
E7                   E7             A       A
Nothin', and that's all that Bobby left me
      D                D          A                     A
Well, feelin' good was easy, lo-o-ord, when he sang the blues
    E7               E7               E7  E7
And feelin' good was good enough for me
E7               E7               A         A
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee yeah

Y ahora un poco de caña:
y un tutorial para pillar el ritmo:

Lo último, una balada clásica de The Police, bastante dificililla la guitarra, a ver si se me ocurre alguna cosa para simplificarla.
De momento, una lección:

Un par de propuestas

Sweet home chicago
