Come 'n listen to my story 'bout a man name Jed Poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed An' then one day he was shootin' at some food An' up through the ground come a-bubblin' crude Oil that is! Black Gold! Texas Tea! Well, the first thing you know, ol' Jed's a millionaire Kin folk said, "Jed move away from there" Said "California is the place y'oughta to be" So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly Hills that is! Swimmin' pools! Movie stars! Ol' Jed bought a mansion, Lawdy, it was swank Next door neighbour was pres'dent of the bank Folks objected, but the banker found no fault 'Cause ol' Jed's millions was a layin' in the vault Cash that is! Capital gains! Depletion money! Well, now it's time to say good bye to Jed and all his kin An' they would like t'thank you folks fer kindly droppin' in You're all invited back again to this locality To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality Hillbilly that is! Set a spell! Take your shoes off! Y'all come back, Y'hear!
