Ballad of jed clampett  Roy Clark

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