Now I got a gal that's sweet to me
But she just ain't what she used to be
Just a little high headed that's plain to see
Don't get above your raisin', stay down to earth with me

Now look here gal don't you high head me
For I ain't forgot how you used to be
When you didn't have nothin' that was plain to see
Don't get above your raisin', stay down to earth with me

You need not hold your head so high
Every time you pass me by
For that don't mean nothin' to me you see
Don't get above your raisin', stay down to earth with me

Now look here gal you'd better be yourself
And leave that other stuff on the shelf
You're a country baby that's plain to see
Don't get above your raisin', stay down to earth with me
