EARL SCRUGGSThe Beverly Hillbillies Lyrics
The Ballad Of Jed Clampett
Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
A 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
Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire,
Kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.
Hills, that is.
Well now it's time to say good by to Jed and all his kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin' in.
You're all invited back a gain to this locality
To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality
Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off
Y'all come back now, y'hear? Correct these lyrics
