Bean Blossom - Balad Of Jed Clamepett lyrics
Sure you will recognize the little sound, a little like this.
Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shooting at some food
Up thru the ground come a bubbling crude
Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea
Well the first thing you know, Old Jed's a millionaire
Kinfolk 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
Granny and me always there do a little dance on this number and I thought maybe that more of you kind of join in and take my part, I try to do a step or two at Granny’s part. This is a little I stole from my buddy Bill Monroe long years ago.
I think it’s called Kentucky Back Step – ready!
