Where Is Bobbie Gentry?

This song is by Jill Sobule and appears on the album California Years (2009).

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

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
