Song : A

Intro :
A Bm E7 A
D D# E7 A
A
Come and listen to my story
Bm E7
about a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer or barely
A
kept his family fed
D D#
Then one day he was shooting at some food
E7 A
And up from the ground came a bubbling crude

Oil, that is, black gold, Texas tea

A Bm E7 A
D D# E7 A
A
Well the first thing you know
Bm E7
old Jed's a millionaire
Kin folk said "Jed,
A
move away from there".
D D#
Said "California is the place you ought to be".
E7 A
So he loaded up the truck and he moved to Beverly…

Hills, that is, swimming pools, movie stars
A Bm E7 A
D D# E7 A
A
Well, now it's time to say goodbye
Bm E7
to Jed and all his kin
They would like to thank you folks
A
for kindly dropping in
D D#
You're all invited back again to this locality
E7 A
To have a heaping helping of their hospitality
Beverly Hillbillies, that's what they call 'em now, nice folks.
Ya'll come back here ?
