    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 we walked back to the house to eat
    And mama hollered at the back door "y'all remember to wipe your feet"
    And then she said she got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
    Today Billie Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

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

    And 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 just 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've been cookin' all morning and you haven't touched a 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 throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge"

    A year has come 'n' gone since we heard the news 'bout Billie Joe
    Brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo
    There was a virus going 'round, papa caught it and he died last Spring
    And now mama doesn't seem to wanna do much of anything
    And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge

    And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge
