The original is a Bob Dylan composition. I believe it was recorded acoustically but I couldn't find a copy of it anywhere- so you'll just have to take my word for it.

Original Bob Dylan The Mighty Quinn

"]YouTube- Manfred Mann Mighty Quinn

I know- most people think that this was the original.

Original:
"]YouTube- Coldplay - 'Fix you' music video
I think this version is kind of cheesy

Cover:
"]YouTube- I will try to fix you

This version usually makes me want to cry. I think it is because of the age of the singer changes the meaning of the lyrics alot.

I couldn't find the Dylan version on Youtube but he often called it the first rap song. In that spirit I think this version though a little odd I think it is appropriate. Not neccessarily better or worse. Just different:

I heard this song by alot of artists, but I never really knew the original artist until one day I was in a used record store and there it was - by Kris Kristofferson.


"]YouTube- the Essential Kris Kristofferson Me and Bobby Mcgee


Here's the one that most people are familiar with.

"]YouTube- Janis Joplin - Me & Bobby McGee
