You achieved fame and fortune during the Sixties.
You achieved it by starring in The Beverly Hillbillies.
For nearly ten years you entertained us as Elly May Clampett.
Now you’re gone forever and it’s something your fans regret.
When you became famous, it was what you deserved.
Men loved your beauty and they also loved your curves.
You died on New Year’s Day.
It’s sad that you passed away.
You also starred in a Twilight Zone episode and in a movie with Elvis.
You were America’s most famous Tomboy and you will be missed.
Dedicated to Donna Douglas who died at the age of 82 on January 1, 2015.
