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 murgatroyd
Miners to coal
A good women can make a diamond out of a measly lump of coal
You need the patience of a glacier
If you can wait that long
Open up his window and admit it that you're wrong

They're ain't enough raised right men
I said there ain't enough raised right men
It takes raised right men to keep a happy hen
I said there ain't enough raised right men

Mackey Debiasi
Was a complicated man
He quarreled with his woman
And she quarreled with her man
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

They're ain't enough raised right men
I said there just ain't enough raised right men
It takes 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
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 men
Ain't enough raised right
Ain't enough raised right
Ain't enough raised right me
I said there ain't enough raised right men
It takes 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 ain't enough raised right men
Where are the raised right men
