While I was walkin' down the beach one bright and sunny day
And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge
Well, Billy Joe never had a lick of sense; pass the biscuits, please
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 Billy Joe was throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge.
I just noticed in re-reading this that every one 'hollered' at Phil in his song too!
