Ode to billy joe

Bobby Gentry



 F7
It was the third of June,
 Cm7F7
Another sleepy, dusty,  
 F7
I was out choppin' cotton
 Cm7F7
And my brother was bailin' hay 
 Bb7
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
 F7
And Mama hollered at the back door,
 Cm7F7
"Y'all remember to wipe your feet." 
 Bb7
Then she said,
"I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
 F7
Today Billy Joe McAllister
 Eb7F
Jumped off the Tallahatchee Bridge."
