Raised Right Men (Waits Tom)

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 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 It takes raised right men to keep a happy hen 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 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 It takes raised right men to keep a happy hen There ain’t enough raised right men
