    • Nancy from GeorgiaI can't believe that nobody has looked at part of the lyrics more closely. In the verses where she refers to her brother, it's with a lower case "b".
      When she talks about "Brother married Becky Johnson, they bought a store in Tupelo"; notice the uppercase "B". Ther also an uppercase "B" when the mother referred to the preacher "Brother Taylor".
      I believe she is saying that the preacher "Brother" was actually the one who married Becky Johnson.
      Of course, this is my interpretation. I could be wrong. Only Bobbie Gentry knows.
