"Billy Joe McAlister jumped off the Tallahassee bridge", that song is pretty cool, one of those surprise MP3's that i have on my itunes. The only thing thats different then wat ur say is mine is by someone named Bobbie Gentry.

I’m right around your time, Jack: Dec. 1966 – Year of the Horse. But I'm still a very young '66 Stallion :mrgreen:

My song, "Winchester Cathedral" by The New Vaudeville Band.

Never heard of these f*ckers. :mrgreen:
