The Ballad Of Billy Joe and Carrie Sue



Those Days I Remember
Thru' January To December
Maybe It's Just My Heart A Bleeding
Thinking It's My Mind Receeding ......


I Remember When Those Soriority Girls
With Their Wayward Smiles
And Then There's Billy Joe
Who Couldn't Dance


But Gave Himself
Half A Chance
I Always Wondered
What Was On His Mind .


These Days I Remember
Thru' All Seasons Pass
I Won't Forget Those Times Oh Oh
Feels Like Falling Thru An Hourglass


Then There Was Carrie Sue
She Knew What To Do
That Time She And Billy
Hanging ' Round The Ole Bayou


There Was Little Romance
But Still Made Up Their Minds
They Knew Their Passion Dance


I Always Wondered
Guess They Were Two Of A Kind


Those Days I Remember
Thru' January To December
Maybe It's Just My Heart A Bleeding
Thinking It's Only My Mind Receeding


These Days I Remember
Through All Seasons That Pass
I Won't Forget Those Times Oh Oh
Feels Like Falling Thru' An Hourglass .................

"Feels Like Falling Thru An Hourglass"...I love that line.
You know, with the right tune, this could actually be a song...
