Janis Joplin Quotes

Guess what, I might be the first hippie pinup girl.

Janis Joplin

Summertime, time, time
Child, the living’s easy
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord
Cotton’s high, Lord so high!

Your daddy’s rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby
She’s a-looking good now
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby now
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Don’t you cry, don’t you cry.

One of these mornings
You’re gonna rise, rise up singing
You’re gonna spread your wings, child
And take, take to the sky
Lord, the sky.

But until that morning
Honey, n-n-nothing’s going to harm ya
No, no, no no, no no, no…
Don’t you cry, cry!

Janis Joplin

Me and Bobby McGee

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.

Janis Joplin, written by Kris Kristofferson

Contact The Hell Raisin’ Hippies Quotes


You’re an interesting species. An interesting mix. You’re capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.

You know the opinion of Cervantes? He said that reading a translation is like examining the back of a piece of tapestry.
