Oak Ridge Boys, The - Bobbie Sue Lyrics

I heard about her from a friend of mine
He said she lived across the county line
The sweetest grape that ever grew on the vine
And now that's where I'm spending all my time.

Her daddy Robert and her mama Ruth
They had a daughter they named Bobbie Sue
And now she's eighteen and she knows the truth
Nobody's gonna tell her what to do.

Bo-Bo, Bo-Bo, Bobbie Sue
Ca-can't you see my love is true?
I want to ma-ma, ma-ma, marry you
Bo-Bo-Bo-Bo-Bo- Bobbie Sue.

I'll take her riding on a Friday night
Straight down the highway in the clear moonlight
My Chevy’s humming and she holds me tight
We'll find a preacher and we'll do it right.

Her daddy told her that she'd have to wait
Her mama said, "don't make a big mistake"
But we'll keep driving till we're out of state
And when they find us it'll be too late.

Bo-Bo, Bo-Bo, Bobbie Sue
Ca-can't you see my love is true?
I want to ma-ma, ma-ma, marry you
Bo-Bo-Bo-Bo-Bo- Bobbie Sue.

Bo-Bo, Bo-Bo, Bobbie Sue
Ca-can't you see my love is true?
I want to ma-ma, ma-ma, marry you
Bo-Bo-Bo-Bo-Bo- Bobbie Sue.

Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob Bobbie Sue

Bo-Bo, Bo-Bo, Bobbie Sue

B…..o…….b…...b…..y Sue [fading]

  6. Bobbalooie

  61. Dacey Bowman

    My momma's name is Bobbie Suzanne, so "Bobbie Sue", and her parents didn't want her marrying my daddy, but they did it anyway. My daddy sings this song to my momma all the time, and whenever it comes on the radio where-ever they are, even going down the highway, he'll stop and sing it to her while they dance. It makes me happy.

    In 2019 they will have been married 50 years. Love lasts if you want it to.

    Deborah Davis

    I love it. My dog's name was Bobbie Sue. I found her in the parking lot of Ingles grocery store of which Bob Ingles is the CEO. I was going to name her Bob in his honor until I discovered she was a girl . Then it was Bobbie Sue in honor of ORB.

    Karla Cleverly

    How sweet!

    Chad Linnel

    That's great.

  62. MrPAPAGAYO46

    Este cuarteto de música country de los 80 nos sorprende con la maravillosa fusión de sus voces, en el que ninguna de ellas pasa desapercibida, y cabe destacar la increíble sonoridad del bajo profundo, que a pesar de su tono más grave y oscuro no deja para nada de oírse.

  63. Dakota Watson

    Funny thing is (Even though I'm 17) I have this record. play it on my record player when I'm in the mood for some Bob bob bob bob Bobby Sue

  75. Michael O'Dell

    Love it. Oak Ridge Boys are the best around. I used to have a friend named Bobby Sue Smith until she committed suicide a few years ago. This song reminds me of her.

    Paula Croy

    Michael O'Dell I SURE am SORRY to hear that your friend Bobby Sue Smith had COMMITTED SUICIDE . God Bless You and Bobby Sue Smith's Family.

    Michael O'Dell

    @Paula Croy it broke my heart when I heard that she committed suicide. I cried for 3 days straight because I lost a girlfriend ( dated for awhile) and a best friend both. There will never be another dear friend like her around anymore. I still cherish the memories we had as friends forever. I'll see her again in heaven some day and she'll be there with her arms open wide to hug and comfort me. I started crying posting this because I miss her dearly.

    paula croy

    Michael O'Dell I apologize for posting anything at all makes me wish never seen it. I apologize if I'm wrong for posting this too.

  89. MrPAPAGAYO46

    Una balada pegajosa y muy chispeante, magistralmente interpretada por The Oak Ridge Boys armonizando sus voces en una cadencia perfecta, donde la voz de Richard Sterban, el bajo profundo, no pasa desapercibida pese al acompañamiento de los otros integrantes y la nutrida instrumentación de cobres, piano, cuerdas y percusión. Un verdadero clásico de la música country, cuya letra completa está justamente abajo de mi comentario, en la etiqueta "blacksmith".

  90. WhosGrif

    Why can't this song be played more

  91. James Bantaa

    Best fuckin song on the planet
