Listen to Bobbie Gentry Singing her Ode to Billie Joe

Bobbie Gentry wrote and recorded the wonderful song, Ode to Billie Joe, in 1967. We, at Mimi Berlin, can’t get enough of this 1960s not-your-average-country-&-western song. It’s about how daily life goes (on) in a little community in the south part of the USA. The way Bobbie Gentry performs is breathtaking.

The song was written by Ms Gentry in 1967
