Cheers.

I suggest starting with Fancy, which is a real page turner about a momma buying her young daughter (named Fancy) a red velvet dress so that she can become a lady of the night to escape desperate poverty.

"momma looked back at the pitiful shack and took in a ragged breath
She said your pa's run off, I'm real sick and the baby's gonna starve to death
That was the last time I saw my momma
When I left that rickety shack
The welfare people came and took the baby.
Momma died and I ain't been back.

But the wheels of fate had started to turn
And for me there was no other way out.
It wasn't very long after that I knew exactly
What my momma was talkin' 'bout.

I knew what I had to do.
Then I made myself this solemn vow:
I's gonna to be a lady someday
Though I didn't know when or how.

But I couldn't see spendin' the rest of my life
With my head hung down in shame.
You know I mighta been born just plain white trash.
But Fancy was my name.

"Here's your last chance, Fancy, don't let me down!
Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down.


God bless, OP.

So in the Ballad of Billie Joe, what were they throwing off the bridge? Was it a baby?

It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day
I was out choppin' cotton, and my brother was balin' hay
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
And then she said, I got some news this mornin' from Choctaw Ridge
Today, Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Thats what I think OP... But it seems kind of odd that they wouldn't notice she was pregnant?????

That was pretty much the consensus when the song was popular, although I was a little kid at the time and wondered about the pregnancy thing as well.
