There
ain’t enough raised right men I
said “There, ain’t enough raised right men” It
takes a raised right man to keep a happy hen I
said “There, ain’t enough raised right men” Heavens
to Murkatroid miners, to coal A
good women can make a diamond out of a measly lump of coal And
you need the patience of a glacier if you can wait that long Open
up his window and admit it when you’re wrong And
they’re ain’t enough raised right ain’t, enough raised right men I
said “There, ain’t enough raised right men” It
takes a raised right men to keep a happy hen I
said “There, ain’t enough raised right men” Mackey
Debiasi was a complicated man He
quarrelled with his woman and she quarrelled with her man And
his head was just too thick so she knocked out a tooth He’s
that lonely man on the turnpike in the toll takers booth And
they’re ain’t enough raised right ain’t, enough raised right men I
said “There, just ain’t enough raised right men” It
takes a raised right men to keep a happy hen I
said “There, ain’t enough raised right men” Gunplay
Maxwell and Flat Nose George Ice
Pick Ed Newcomb on a slab in the morgue And
Flat Nose looked at Gunplay and they all looked at me With
a good woman’s love we could have saved all three And
there ain’t enough raised right ain’t, enough raised right ain’t, enough raised right ain’t, enough raised right men I
said “There, ain’t enough raised right men” It
takes a raised right men to keep a happy hen I
said “There, ain’t enough raised right men” I
said “There, ain’t enough raised right men” I
said “There, just ain’t enough raised right men” Where
are the raised right men
