Obituary of the Week: 'Beverly Hillbillies' Singer Jerry Scoggins

From the Reuters obit of the Country and Western singer Jerry Scoggins who died at age 93 in LA and was best known for recording the theme song for the "Beverly Hillbillies":

Come 'n listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed Poor Mountaineer barely kept his family fed An' then one day, he was shooting at some food, An' up through the ground come a bubblin' crude. Oil that is! Black gold! Texas tea!
According to Scoggins' daughter, he loved that song so much that he sang it every day for years, including to her and her friends when they came home from school.
