Ballad Of Jed Clampett

Brothers Osborne

Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shooting at some food
And up through the ground came a bubbling crude.

Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, the first thing you know Jed's a millionaire
Kinfolk said Jed, move away from there
He said that California is the place he ought to be
So he loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly.

Hills that is, swimming pools and movie stars.

--- Instrumental ---

Now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin
They would like to thank you folks for kindly dropping in
You're all invited back again to this locality
To have a heaping helping of their hospitality.

Beverly Hillbillies that's what they call 'em now
Nice folks, y'all come back now, hear?...
