earl scruggs – the ballad of jed clampett lyrics


[verse 1]
come and listen to a story ’bout a man named jed
poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
then one day he was shootin’ at some food
and up through the ground came a bubblin’ crude
oil that is…black gold…texas tea

[verse 2]
well the first thing you know ol’ jed’s a millionaire
kin folk said, jed move away from there
said california is the place you oughta be
so they loaded up the truck and moved to beverly
hills that is…swimming pools…movie stars

[verse 3]
now it’s time to say goodbye to jed and all his kin
they would like to thank you folks for kindly droppin’ in
you’re all invited back again to this locality
to have a heapin’ helpin’ of their hospitality
beverly hillbillies…that’s what they call ’em now

nice folks
y’all come back, y’hear?
