Let's Have A Hoedown is a song that plays in The Beverly Hillbillies (DOS) when the Clampetts host a hoedown in their mansion to celebrate their newfound wealth. It is the last song the player hears out of the five songs in the game.

Chris Barker wrote the song in MIDI format in an unknown sequencer, which was then converted to the Midpak standard XMI format. The song's internal name is HOEDOWN.XMI, and is found in the game's root directory. The file was created on October 12, 1993.

Let's Have A Hoedown comes from the name given in the instruction manual which refers to the part of the game this song plays in. Chris Barker should be contacted for an official title.


The song plays in the key of C. It starts out at approximately 156 BPM, but the tempo increases near the end of the song. The song only uses 2 sound channels.
