The Ballad Of Jed Clampett

lyrics

Let me tell you a story about a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shootin’ at some food
Up from the ground came a bubblin’ crude

Black gold, Texas tea

The next thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire
Kinfolk said Jed move away from there
Said California is the place you ought to be
They packed up his truck and moved to Beverly

Let me tell you a story about a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shootin’ at some food
Up from the ground came a bubblin’ crude

Black gold, Texas tea

The next thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire,
Kinfolk said Jed move away from there
Said California is the place you ought to be
They packed up his Ford and moved to Beverly

Hills, that is. Swimmin’ pools, Tom Cruse

Y'all come back now, y'hear
