D7Twas the third of june another sleepy dusty delta day D7I was out choppin cotton and my brother was balin' hay G7And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat D7And Mama hollered out the back door "y'all remember to wipe your feet G7And then she said "I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge" "Today BillD7y Joe MacAllister jumpedC7 off the Tallahatchie D7Bridge" D7And 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" D7And Mama said it was shame about Billy Joe, anyhow G7Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge And now BillyD7 Joe MacAllister's jumpeC7d off the TallahatchieD7 Bridge D7And Brother said he recollected when he and Tom and Billie Joe D7Put a frog down my back at the Carroll County picture show G7And 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" "And now you tellD7 me Billie Joe's jumpedC7 off the TallahatchieD7 Bridge" D7And 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" "And she and BilD7ly Joe was throwing somethin'C7 off the TallahatchieD7 Bridge" D7A year has come 'n' gone since we heard the news 'bout Billy Joe D7And Brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo G7There was a virus going 'round, Papa caught it and he died last Spring D7And now Mama doesn't seem to wanna do much of anything G7And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge And drop them D7into the muddy water oC7ff the Tallahatchie D7Bridge
