	        G                              Am        D 
Come listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed 
                           G6              G 
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed 
                    C                Bm 
Then one day he was shootin' at some food 
    D                            G6       G 
And up through the ground came a-bubblin' crude 
Oil that is. Black gold. Texas tea. 
Well, the first thing you know old Jed's a millionaire 
The kin folks said 'Jed move away from there' 
Said 'California's the place you ought to be' 
So they bundled up the truck and moved to Beverly 
Hills that is. Swimmin' pools. Movie stars. 
Well, now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin 
They would like to thank you for kindly stoppin' in 
You're all invited back next week to this locality 
To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality
