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?
