Come and listen to my story about a man named Jed1
A poor mountaineer2, barely kept his family fed,
And then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground come a bubblin crude.
Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea3.
Well the first thing you know ol Jed’s a millionaire,
The kinfolk said “Jed move away from there”
Said “Californy is the place you ought to be”
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly
Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.
1 Jed is a fictional character from the Beverly Hillbillys
2 Jed’s status as a real mountaineer is in doubt..needs citation
3 There is no historical fact of Texans actually drinking crude oil…needs citation
