THE BALLAD OF JED CLAMPETT
G Am D
Come listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shootin' at some food
D G6 G
And up through the ground came a-bubblin' crude
Oil that is. Black gold. Texas tea.
Well, the first thing you know old Jed's a millionaire
The kin folks said "Jed move away from there"
Said "California's the place you ought to be"
So they bundled up the truck and moved to Beverly
Hills that is. Swimmin' pools. Movie stars.
Well, now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin
They would like to thank you for kindly stoppin' in
You're all invited back next week to this locality
To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality
Peace, love, and soul,
