Ballad Of Jed Clampett

Roy Clark

 GD
  Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed
 G
Poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
 G7C
Then one day he was  shootin' at some food
 DG
And up through the ground came a bubbling crude
(Oil, that is, Texas tea, black gold)
 GD
  First thing you know, old Jed's a millionaire
 G
Friends said, Jed,  move away from here
 G7C
Said that California was the place he ought to be
 DG
  So he loaded up the truck and they moved to  Beverly
(Hills, that is, swimming pools and movie stars)
 GD
   Well, now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin
 G
They would like to thank you folks for kindly dropping in
 G7C
You're all invited back again to this locality
 DG
To have a heaping helping of their  hospitality  
 G
  (Beverly Hillbillies, that's what they call 'em now
Nice folks, Y'all come back now, hear?)
