[music |bobby gentry - ode to billie joe]

let's just say from the getgo i love ode to billie joe,
to me it encapsuates a southern way of thinking about death
yeah, the dumbass threw himself off a bridge
but hey, life goes on...
get over it

but it is a peculiarly lovely song
because of the clash of drama and the everyday.
you want to know why...?
why did billie joe throw himself off the tallahachie bridge..?

here's how to play it and here's some people playing it...

and here is some more famous people playing it...
