Ode to Billie Joe tab
Accords guitare de la chanson « Ode to Billie Joe » de Bobbie Gentry.
D7 Twas the third of june another sleepy dusty delta day D7 I was out choppin cotton and my brother was balin' hay G7 And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat D7 And Mama hollered out the back door "y'all remember to wipe your feet G7 And then she said "I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge" D7 C7 D7 "Today Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge" D7 And Papa said to Mama as he passed around the blackeyed peas D7 "Well, Billy Joe never had a lick of sense, pass the biscuits, please" G7 "There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow" D7 And Mama said it was shame about Billy Joe, anyhow G7 Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge D7 C7 D7 And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge D7 And Brother said he recollected when he and Tom and Billie Joe D7 Put a frog down my back at the Carroll County picture show G7 And wasn't I talkin' to him after church last Sunday night? D7 "I'll have another piece of apple pie, you know it don't seem right" G7 "I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctaw Ridge" D7 C7 D7 "And now you tell me Billie Joe's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge" D7 And Mama said to me "Child, what's happened to your appetite?" D7 "I've been cookin' all morning and you haven't touched a single bite" G7 "That nice young preacher, Brother Taylor, dropped by today" D7 "Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, oh, by the way" G7 "He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up on Choctaw Ridge" D7 C7 D7 "And she and Billy Joe was throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge" D7 A year has come 'n' gone since we heard the news 'bout Billy Joe D7 And Brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo G7 There was a virus going 'round, Papa caught it and he died last Spring D7 And now Mama doesn't seem to wanna do much of anything G7 And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge D7 C7 D7 And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge
