Ode to Billie Joe" is a song written and recorded by Bobbie Gentry, a singer-songwriter from Chickasaw County, Mississippi. The single, released on July 10, 1967, was a number-one hit in the US within three weeks of release and a big international seller. Billboard ranked the record as the No. 3 song of the year. The recording remained on the Billboard chart for 20 weeks and was the Number 1 song for four weeks.

Gentry's debut LP, which went to number one on the pop charts, was a promising but not wholly satisfying disc, with the singer penning all but one of the songs. Inevitably, the title track dwarfed everything else by comparison, but a greater problem was that several of the other tunes recycled variations of the "Ode to Billie Joe" riff

Ode to Billie Joe is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Bobbie Gentry. In 2008, Australian label Raven Records released the album on CD, paired with 1969’s Touch 'Em with Love. In retrospect, the track is more obviously commercial and reflects what was on the charts in 1967.

Her Ode to Billie Joe album matched the single’s chart feat, however, reaching (replacing Sgt. Pepper ), and also made it to on the trade magazine’s Black Albums chart, a rare feat for a country-style tune. There were six more albums that made the charts, including 1968’s Bobbie Gentry & Glen Campbell, but it was that first surprise smash with which she will forever be associated. Bobbie Gentry retired from music in the 1981 after three failed marriages and now reportedly lives a quiet life not far from the original site of the Tallahatchie Bridge. Her hit song, meanwhile, long ago took on a life of its own. There’s an entire book devoted to Ode, written by Tara Murtha and published in 2015.
