    That song always hit pretty close to home, because both of my parents grew up in an environment a lot like the one Bobbie Gentry sang about, my mom more so than my dad. Small-town Southern backwater in the Depression.

    My mom said there was a lot of truth in the lyrics, especially the casual acceptance of death and hardship ("pass the biscuits, please"), like a kid committing suicide was no big deal. Truly one of the more underrated great songs of the Sixties.
