Hi Wave..........Sorry, as Matt said, it's based on "Ode to Billie Joe" a song by Bobbie Gentry about 1967, the main theme line being, "The day that Billie Joe McCalister jumped off the Tallahatchie bridge." It was a sort of mystery as to what Billie Joe and some mystery person threw off the bridge prior to Billie Joe's leap.
