Ballad Of Jed Clampett  Roy Clark

[G] Come and listen to my story 'bout a [D]man named Jed
Poor mountaineer, barely [G]kept his family fed
Then one [G7]day he was [C] shootin' at some food
And [D]up through the ground came a bubbling [G]crude
(Oil, that is, Texas tea, black gold)
[G] First thing you know, old [D]Jed's a millionaire
Friends said, Jed, [G] move away from here
Said that Cali[G7]fornia was the [C]place he ought to be
[D] So he loaded up the truck and they moved to [G] Beverly
(Hills, that is, swimming pools and movie stars)
  [G] Well, now it's time to say goodbye to [D]Jed and all his kin
They would like to thank you folks for [G]kindly dropping in
You're all invited [G7]back again to [C]this locality
To [D]have a heaping helping of their  hospitality  [G]
[G] (Beverly Hillbillies, that's what they call 'em now
Nice folks, Y'all come back now, hear?)
