Ode To Billy Joe

by Samm Bennett - Polarity Records



I've loved this song ever since I first heard it as a boy, when it was released in 1967. A few years later I saw Bobbie perform it at none other than the Alabama State Fair, in my hometown of Birmingham. All the ensuing years have only deepened my affection for this incredible song. Hope you enjoy my cover of it.

NOTE: Since this is not my original song, I offer it as a free download. There is a "pay more if you want" option, and, and should you decide to do so, I greatly appreciate your generosity in this regard, to further the musical pursuits. Many thanks.
