Mason Jennings Lyrics: Billie Holiday

Billie Holiday

There may be additional lyrics at the beginning of this song; the only copy I have starts (rather suddenly) with the following line.

In the melody, oh the melody
Doodah, Billie Holiday on phonograph (4x)

Down by the river where the tall trees grow
There's a place in the grass where I spend my time
Sit beneath the evening when the summer winds blow
I take a blanket and my baby and a bottle of wine

Truly all the good things to me
Living life in the country when the day turns blue
And every time I feel so happy
I remember her singin' [unintelligible]

Doodah, Billie Holiday on phonograph (4x)
