Well I got a gal that's sweet to me
She just ain't what she used to be
She's just a little high headed
And that's plain to see
Don't get above your raising
Stay down to earth with me

Now looky here girl don't you holler at me
I ain't forgot what you used to be
When you didn't have nothing
That's plain to see
Don't get above your raising
Stay down to earth with me.

Have to raise your head so high
Every time you pass me by
'Cause it don't mean nothing
To me you see
Don't get above your raising
Stay down to earth with me

Now looky here gal you better be yourself
And leave that other stuff out on the shelf
'Cause you're country baby
And that's plain to see
Don't get above your raising
Stay down to earth with me

Don't get above your raising
Stay down to earth with me
