	        G                               C         D  
Let me tell you a story about a man named Jed  
D                         G  
A poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed.  
G                      C  
Then one day he while shootin' at some food  
D                                  G  
Up from the ground came a bubblin' crude.  
Oil that is,  black gold,  Texas tea 
G                                 C             D  
Well the first thing you know Ole Jed’s a millionaire.  
D                       G   
The kinfolk said, “Jed, move away from there!”  
 G                           C  
They said “Californie is the place that you oughta be!”  
        D                                          G   
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly  
Hills, that is, Swimming pools, and movie stars 
G                                 C               D   
Now, it's time to say good-bye to Jed and all his kin.  
D                                    G   
They would like to thank you all for kindly dropin’ in.  
G                                C   
You’re all invited back again to this locality,  
   D                                       G  
To have a heapin’ helpin’ of their hospitality.  
Hillbillies, that's good folks, 
Y'all come back now, y'hear?
