Bobbie Gentry – Ode To Billie Jo lyrics

It was the third of June
Another sleepy, dusty
I was out chopping cotton
And my brother was bailing hay
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
And Mama hollered at the back door
"Y'all remember to wipe your feet"
Then she said
"I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
Today Billy Joe McAllister
Jumped off the Talahachee Bridge"
