ode to billy joe   Bobby Gentry

"Ode to Billy Joe"

Key of F, Common Time "With a beat"

Words and music by Bobbie Gentry
It was the third of June,
         Cm7                    F7
Another sleepy, dusty, 
I was out choppin' cotton 
        Cm7                   F7
And my brother was bailin' hay
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
And Mama hollered at the back door,
         Cm7                       F7
"Y'all remember to wipe your feet."
Then she said, 

"I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
Today Billy Joe McAllister
       Eb7                        F
Jumped off the Tallahatchee Bridge."

Michael shaw
