Me and Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin Rare Version! Just her amazing voice and guitar!

"Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose
Nothin', don't mean nothin' hon' if it ain't free, no no"

Viewer comment: Such a BEAUTIFUL person!
Her voice ... her soulful voice, is just amazing.
She sang when there was no technology, that they use today, that can make anyone a singer.
She was raw, unique and perfect ... yesterday, today and she will forever, live on in her music.
God Bless her, may she rest in peace!
