Ode To Billy Joe Lyrics by Sheryl Crow
Ode To Billy Joe by Sheryl Crow
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"
