    • Anomar from Lexington TnThis has always been one of my favorite songs and I've raised my daughter on it. Every year we manage to call, text or email each other on the 3rd of June, and sing the whole song. Last year we went to "a" bridge over the Tallahatchie close to Money MS and tossed flowers. We're doing it again this year. And it always surprises me that nothing has been done to commemorate that town and the Emmet Till tragedy. It's directly off the Blues Highway and would be a boon for the area.
