Ode to Billie Joe is a song written and performed by Bobbie Gentry. On MWC, it is heard in the 2nd season episode, Poppy's by the Tree, Part I.
It is heard at the beginning of the episode with the couple, Dottie and Harold, arguing about the quality of the motel they are staying at in 1967.
The 2nd and part of the 3rd verse of the song are heard, before Dottie turns off the radio.
And at dinner time we stopped
and walked back to the house to eat
And Mama hollered out the back door,
"Y'all remember to wipe your feet"
Then she said, "I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
Today Billie Joe McAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge"
Papa said to Mama as he passed around the black-eyed peas
"Well, Billie Joe never had a lick o' sense, pass the biscuits, please"
