“Me and Bobby McGee” is a song written by Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster, originally performed by Roger Miller. Others performed the song later, including the Grateful Dead, Kristofferson himself, and Janis Joplin who topped the U.S. singles chart with the song in 1971 after her death, making the song the second posthumous number-one single in U.S. chart history after “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding. Billboard ranked Joplin’s version as the No. 11 song for 1971. [read on at Wikipedia]
