Re: Meaning of "Ode To Billy Joe"
There's a movie that tells the story.
Robbie Benson starred in it.
The singer said she never knew why he jumped, so the movie is just one interpretation.
I forgot to put in the OP to not consider the movie since it takes many liberties with the song. And I also made the mistake in the spelling of the song. It should be "Ode To Billie
Joe." The movie uses Billy
instead. Bad way for me to start this thread.
Imogene, get serious! Who do you think you're talking to?! I've known you for 27 years, and all I can say is, if God was giving out sexually transmitted diseases to people as a punishment for sinning, then you would be at the free clinic all the time! And so would the rest of us!
