Bill Monroe - The Ballad Of Jed Clampett Lyrics

  • Ballad Of Jed Clampett - Bill Monroe
  • Come and listen to my 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 bubbling crude
  • (Oil, that is, Texas tea, black gold)
  • First thing you know, old Jed's a millionaire
  • Friends said, Jed, move away from here
  • Said that California was 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)
  • Well, 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?)
