(Play G for four beats)
(Repeat 2 more times)

Lyrics:
Come ‘n’ listen to my story ‘bout a man named Jed,
a poor mountaineer who barely kept his family fed.
And then one day he was shootin’ at some food 
when up from the ground came a bubblin’ crude.

Oil, that is, black gold, Texas tea.

Then the next thing you know ol’ Jed’s a millionaire,
kin folks said it’s time to move away from there.
Said California is the place that you oughta be,
so they loaded up their folks and they moved to Beverly

Hills, that is, swimmin’ pools, and movie stars.

So now it’s time to say good-bye to Jed and all his kin.
They would would like to thank you folks for kindly steppin’ in.
Ya’ll come back next week to this locality,
to have a heapin’ helpin’ of their hospitality!

Ya’ll come back now ya here?

I need to correct myself: where it says play G for four beats, that should be 8 beats.
