Come and listen to a story 'bout a woman named Ryieahna,
Poor mountaineer barely kept her family fed.
Then one day she 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 Ryieahna's a millionaire
Kinfolk said, 'Ryieahna, 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 Ryieahna and all her 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.
(Ryieahna's Hillbillies, that's what they call 'em now,
Nice folks Y'all come back now, ya hear?)
