Me and Bobby McGee Lyrics

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the trains,
feelin' nearly faded as my jeans.
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
took us all the way to New Orleans.
I took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
and was blowin' sad...

    I have Known Kris for may years and the meaning of the sentence "I took my Harpoon Out " means, he took out his Harmonica (Blues Harp) or Mouth Organ as it´s also called.
