Bobbie Gentry

This song is by Jill Sobule.

Out in the desert where the skin slowly cures deep brown

She's got a little shack, a pickup truck

Parked out on the edge of town

It's just what I imagined, no one knows where'd she be

Maybe she's in heaven passing black-eyed peas

Where is Bobbie Gentry?

Up in Alaska hauling wood or maybe in Japan

I bet that she's too beautiful, goes barefoot everywhere she can

Does she still play guitar or write a song or two?

Maybe that was over; she's got better things to do

Where is Bobbie Gentry?

Where is Bobbie Gentry?

If I could just find you

I would love you and I'd leave you alone

If I could just find you

I would love you and I'd leave you alone

Alone

1967, Bobbie made it on the Billboard charts

Ten years later, disappeared and broke everybody's heart

Does she ever go to Chickasaw?

Ever go back on that bridge? (Ever go back on that bridge?)

Well, I was the baby

Who was thrown off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Yeah, I was the baby

Who was thrown off the Tallahatchie Bridge
