  • Lyrics: Rose-coloured wine, a ring on the page Shadowy figure, collapsed on the stage, He’s the gambler, he’s the flame, He’s Bobby McGee on a horse with no name, He never grew tired of playin’ the game, Fast drinkin’ man on a slow movin’ train. The tables were long, but they never got filled, Till Johnny came down just to give ‘em a thrill, He’s a circle, in the sand, Where boundaries are made by the soul and the hand, Like a feather adrift movin’ over the land, Slow movin’ train, fast drinkin’ man. Fiery fingers, lines out the door, Crystal collides with the cold beaten floor, Leave the guitar in his hands. Down go the lights of tomorrow today, The end of the show and the end of an age, He’s the gambler, he’s the flame, He’s Bobby McGee on a horse with no name, And he never grew tired of playin’ that game, Fast drinkin’ man, on a slow movin’ train. He’s the gambler, he’s the flame, He’s Bobby McGee on a horse with no name, And he never grew tired of playin’ that game, Fast drinkin’ man…on a slow movin’ train.
