“Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

“Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

Me and Bobby McGee Janis Joplin

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin’ for a train

And I’s feelin’ near as faded as my jeans

Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained

It rode us all the way to New Orleans

 

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna

I was playin’ soft while Bobby sang the blues, yeah

Windshield wipers slappin’ time, I was holdin’ Bobby’s hand in mine

We sang every song that driver knew

 

Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose

Nothin’, don’t mean nothin’ hon’ if it ain’t free, no no

And, feelin’ good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues

You know, feelin’ good was good enough for me

Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

From the Kentucky coal mine to the California sun

There Bobby shared the secrets of my soul

Through all kinds of weather, through everything we done

Yeah, Bobby baby kept me from the cold

One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away

He’s lookin’ for that home, and I hope he finds it

But, I’d trade all of my tomorrows, for a single yesterday

To be holdin’ Bobby’s body next to mine

Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose

Nothin’, that’s all that Bobby left me, yeah

But, feelin’ good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues

Hey, feelin’ good was good enough for me, mm-hmm

Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee

Me and Bobby McGee 

I’m no where near being free!  In the years I’ve been writing this blog, I thought I might be a little further along the Path, but all that I have really achieved is the realization that I have so much more to lose!  All the attachments!  All the guilt!  All the pain! All the regret! All the egos! All the karma! All the ignorance!  All the delusion!  All the stupidity! Everything that makes me the lost soul I am!  I know three things for sure.  First, that I am very deeply asleep!  Second, that I really know nothing at all!  Third, that I have so much to learn and so little time to learn it!  That is ALL!  Shalom and namaste!
