"Raise 'Em Up" as written by Tom Douglas, Jaren Johnston and Jeffrey Steele....
Raise 'em up
I'm talkin' 'bout a lighter on a Saturday night
The band plays a song you like and you sing along

Raise em up
I'm talkin' 'bout Daddy's old pickup truck
Shotgun seat, there's the one you love and you're kissin' on

Get those white sails sailing down in Mexico
Its just a whiskey glass if you ain't makin' a toast
Lift your tear-filled eyes up to the sky
A comin' home, you've been gone too long
Tonight were gonna
Raise 'em up

Raise 'em up
You got a voice, you got a choice
Go make some noise
Don't ever let 'em tell you who you are
Raise 'em up
Fist black and blue, fight for the truth
Its what you do
Hand on your heart for the stripes and stars

Black umbrellas in the pourin' rain
A Sunday Morning Coming Down, Amazing Grace
Lift those tear-filled eyes up to the sky
As the flag flies, say goodbye
Tonight were gonna
Raise 'em up

So, you meet someone
The only one
You take her by the hand
Make a stand
Buy some land
Make some love
And them babies come

Raise 'em up
Raise 'em up
Raise 'em up trophy high
Raise 'em up to the sky
Raise 'em up, show everybody that newborn smile
Raise 'em up tall and strong
Raise 'em up right from wrong
Raise 'em up so damn high they can hear God singing along
Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah

    General CommentKeith Urban says part of the inspiration for his new “Raise ‘Em Up” music video came from watching his girls play. They were jumping up and down and he was filming them in slow motion. That’s quite literally what happens in this clip for the fifth single from Fuse.

    “We put “Raise ‘Em Up” on and were watching this film of our girls and they just went together beautifully,” Urban says. “It was so simple, and emotional, and it captured some of the spirit of what I feel is at the heart of this song.”

    Eric Church co-stars in the new video, released on Conan O’Brien’s TeamCoCo website. The two share the stage throughout the video, and seem to have a genuine camaraderie. Church’s comments seem to reflect what fans see as they watch.

    “My favorite part of this video were the candid moments that were captured between Keith and I on film,” he says. “It’s cool that a number of those made it in the final version. To me, they really reify the emotion of the moment and experience.”

    “Raise em’ up, trophy high / Raise em’ up to the sky / Raise em’ up, show everybody that newborn smile / Raise ‘em up tall and strong / Raise ‘em up right from wrong / Raise em’ up so damn high they can hear God singing along,” they sing at the final chorus.

    The “Raise ‘Em Up” music video was filmed in Nashville in February. The two plan on singing the song during the 2015 ACM Awards on CBS April 19.
