The Clampetts…uhhhh…Longinos

The Clampetts got nothin' on the Longinos

We’re all packed and ready to go…the only thing that seems to be missing is Granny in her rocker on top of the camper!

Shades of  The Beverly Hillbillies, yes? For those too young to recall the Clampetts, check out the infamous theme song, The Ballad of Jed Clampett , from the old TV show.

I couldn’t resist coming up with my own. I call it The Ballad of the Travelin’ Longinos. Sing it to the tune of Jed’s ballad.

The Ballad of the Travelin’ Longinos

Come and listen to a story about the Longinos
A travelin’ duo with a hankerin’ to go.
One fine day they were lookin’ at a map,
And up sparked a thought, quick as a snap.

Westward ho, Nawlins, Texas rose.

Well, the first thing you know they formulate a plan,
Kinfolk said “Y’all go traverse the span!”
Said “Arizony is a place you’ll wanna see.”
So they loaded up the truck and set off to be free.

Westward ho!
Desert springs, mountain highs.

The Travelin’ Longinos!

And let’s not forget the closing of the show…

Well now it’s time to say adieu to John and Donna, too.
And they would like to thank you all for poppin’ by to view.
You’re all invited back again to this locality
To have a heapin’ helpin’ of their hospitality

Westward ho. Read while. Take a load off.

Y’all come back now, y’hear?
