Yeah...sung by a female, but the title refers to a male, unless there is another song with the same name.

I got the same one and I'm sure the subject of the song was male but sung by a female.

Yup, it was a male. R.B. played him in the movie version.

I was thinking the same thing but I guess spelled with an ie is more feminine than spelled with a y.

Now that its over, we can discuss it. The song was Ode to Billie Joe, about Billie Joe McAllister, which was a guy, not a girl. And referred to above, there was a movie made in the 70's, I believe. I'm not sure if the movie was about the song or the song was from the movie but Robbie Benson playd Billie Joe McAllister. And yes, he jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge.

OOPS - Totally 'my bad'!

I had written several titles from memory and then found a website of Songs with Girls Names to choose a few more. This was on the list...and I had one short hesitation about it, but there it was on that website...I should know better. Although to be fair, the website may have included it because a girl is mentioned within the lyrics.

So that was a big boo-boo on my part.

Sorry if it messed you all up!
