Richest man (in the world) Lyrics

Richest man (in the world) by Eddy Arnold  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Richest man (in the world) One, two, three, four.

I got a hump back mule, a plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday.
I got the Lord above and a good girl to love me
I’m the richest man in the world.

Thank you, thank you Lord above
For smiling down on me,
I’m richer now than any man
Has any right to be.
Health and love and happiness have been my cup of tea
The richest man in all creation, surely it is me.

I got a hump back mule, a plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday.
I got the Lord above and a good girl to love me
I’m the richest man in the world.

I’ve got water in my well and heaven in my heart
I have a perfect woman I can trust when we’re apart
Cash enough to see a show and eat out now and then.
A roof, a fishing pole and folks can call me friend.

I got a hump back mule, a plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday.
I got the Lord above and a good girl to love me
I’m the richest man in the world.

I don’t have much bank account my cash on hand is small
But tell me what are riches, what’s the difference after all?
Other folks may think I’m poor but I know it’s not so
’Cause when I count my blessings,
I’m the richest man I know.

I got a hump back mule, a plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday.
I got the Lord above and a good girl to love me
I’m the richest man in the world.

Now the rich folks talk about the grub they eat
Now I’ve got all of those rich folks beat
'Cause I’ve got a field of yellow yams,
A smoke house filled with country hams.

Talk to me about caviar,
They ain’t nothing but fish eggs packed in a jar
I got whole pond of big brown trout,
Fish eggs a whata they talkin’ about?

I ain’t got no fancy swimming pool
But the creek in the woods is deep and cool
I am a lucky man.
I’m a lucky fool.

I’m wealthy! I’m wealthy!

I got a hump back mule, a plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday.
I got the Lord above and a good girl to love me
I’m the richest man in the world.

I got a hump back mule, a plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday.
I got the Lord above and a good girl to love me
I’m the richest man in the world...
