I would urge any listeners to take a bit
of time and listen to whole song and all
the words - this is one the most
interesting songs I can think of that
tells a story, and it tells it in such a
subtle, throwaway style - very unusual
narrative structure .......... Bobbie
Gentry does a great performance if you
check on YouTube - and Veronica here
does a great job of singing a
deceptively difficult song. Also there
is an interesting article on this song
and what it means on wiki.

This song popped into my head for some
reason yesterday, and when I listened to
it again after not hearing it for years,
I was just knocked out by it.

You're right, I think the story is cool
too :D. I sung a rendition of this too,
but in a slightly higher key :). And I
only did a clip of it. The whole song is
great for the story.

This is fantastic - I was going to try
and sing it but just couldn't get the
low note on "Bridge" but you have it
nailed. Please come back and sing some

This is a great song............... by
Bobbie Gentry......... and a creepy
story too.
