Smokey River Boys Lyrics

Beverly Hillbillies Theme Lyrics

(Ballad Of Jed Clampett)

The Osborne Brothers & Smokey River Boys band

Music Introduction: Banjo & band
[1] 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 come a bubbling crude
(Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea)

Music Channel: Banjo solo
[2] Well the first thing you know…. old Jed's a millionaire
Kin folks said, “Jed move away from there”
He said, “California is the place he oughta be”
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly
(Hills that is, swimming pools, and uh movie stars)

Music Channel: Banjo & Mandolin
[3] 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?)

TAG: banjo out BUTTON: 1 bar & cold stop
