OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
Then one day, he was shootin' at some food
And up through the ground came a bubbling crude

Four boys promenade one time around the ring, you're gonna go
Come back, swing your lady, promenade around the ring
Then one day he was shootin' at some food
And up through the ground came a bubbling crude


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru, get four in the middle, count 'em four
Find that corner lady, make a right hand star
Heads star by the left hand, go moving around the ring
To the corner lady meet, do the right and left thru
Swing thru, two by two, boy run around the girl
Chain down the line, keep that lady, promenade the ring
Then one day he was shootin at some food
And up through the ground came a bubbling crude


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
The next thing you know, old Jed's a millionaire
The kin-folks said, Jed, move away from there
They said, California is the place you ought to be
So they loaded up their truck and they moved to Beverly

Circle left
Hills that is ... , swimming pools, movie stars
Allemande left, promenade
Then one day he was shootin' at some food
And up through the ground came a bubbling crude


TAG

And up through the ground came a bubbling crude

The Ballad Of Jed Clampett
 
 

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shooting for some food,
And up through the ground come a bubbling crude
(Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea)

Well the first thing you know old Jed's a millionaire
Kin folk said Jed move away from there
Said California is the place you oughta be
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly
(Hills that is, swimming pools, movie stars)

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, ya hear?)

Lyrics by Paul Henning.
Recorded by Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.
