1.Ode To Billie Joe (修改)

作词:Bobbie Gentry

It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty, delta day
I was out choppin' cotton and my brother was balin' hay
And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat
And Mama hollered out the back door, 'Y'all remember to wipe your feet'
Then she said, 'I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
Today Billie Joe McAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge'

Papa said to Mama as he passed around the black-eyed peas
'Well, Billie Joe never had a lick o' sense, pass the biscuits, please
There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow'
And Mama said it was a shame about Billie Joe anyhow
Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge
And now Billie Joe McAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Brother said he recollected when he and Tom and Billie Joe
Put a frog down my back at the Carroll County picture show
And wasn't I talkin' to him after church last Sunday night

I'll have another piece of apple pie, you know, it don't seem right
I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctaw Ridge
And now you tell me Billie Joe's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Mama said to me, 'Child what's happened to your appetite?
I been cookin' all mornin' and you haven't touched single bite
That nice young preacher Brother Taylor dropped by today
Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, oh by the way
He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up on Choctaw Ridge
And she and Billie Joe was throwin' somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge'

A year has come and gone since I heard the news 'bout Billie Joe
Brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo
There was a virus goin' round, papa caught it and he died last spring
And now Mama doesn't seem to want to do much of anything
And me I spend a lot of time picking flowers up on Choctaw Ridge
And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge

2.Chickasaw County Child (修改)

Just outside of delta country
Where the bitter weeds growin wild
Born seven miles outside of Woodland
Was a Chicasaw County child

An Poppa done brung us some peppermint candy
Momma fixed a custard pie
Bought her a store-bought doll from Jackson
She's 'a apple of everyone's eye

Chickasaw County child
Is gonna be ok
Chickasaw County child
You gonna be somebody someday

Sporting her checkered feedsack dress
A ruby ring from a Cracker Jack box
Shufflin on down that gravel road
Barefooted and chunking rocks

Momma said looky here dumplin
You'll go far, cause you got style
Ain't nothing in this world gonna hold her back
Her pretty Chickasaw County child

Chickasaw County child
Is gonna be ok
Chickasaw County child
You gonna be somebody someday

Leavin the county a week from Monday
Ain't got much to pack
A tin can of black strap sogga molasses
And her momma's almanac

Momma done made her a brand new dress
Made of blue polka dotted silk
Two postcards from California
And a gallon of buttermilk

Chickasaw County child
Is gonna be ok
Chickasaw County child
You gonna be somebody someday
You gonna be somebody someday
You gonna be somebody someday




3.I Saw An Angel Die (修改)

You
You
Came into my life
It was sunshine everywhere
You were outta sight
Just standing, shining there
Shining there
Shining there
All my days were bright
You took me to the sky
You showed me the light
You taught me how to fly to the clouds
Straight up to heaven
Was it just a dream
I couldn't tell if you were really real
Was it just a dream
A dream that I could see and touch and feel
All through the night

I held you close to me and loved you so
But with the light
You turned to me and said you had to go
Please don't go
Please don't go
Across the country side
I chased an angel fleeting
Until it dropped and sighed
Its angel wings still beating
It was you
It was you
Oh I stood there and cried
And watched love fade away
I saw an angel die
My heart died too that day
