    • Teach from Fort Russell, IlGreat song, great song -but almost everybody I know took it as fiction; which it is. Then the movie with Robby Benson came out (pardon the pun) in 1978 and I’m almost positive it would be banned in today’s Woke world. Roger Ebert said at the time: Now I know why Billy Joe jumped off the bridge. BTW- I just passed through Mississippi a week ago and saw the sign for the Tallahatchie bridge and immediately thought back to the song. Lastly, I’ll never see June 3 as anything other than a sleepy, dusty, delta day!
