Richest Man (In The World)    (1955)

I've got a humpback mule
A plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday
I've 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 envies me

I've got a humpback mule
A plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday
I've 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've got a perfect woman
I can trust when we're apart
Other folks may think I'm poor
But I know it's not so
For when I count my blessings
I'm the richest man I know

I've got a humpback mule
A plow and potato patch
Eggs that are gonna hatch someday
I've got the Lord above
And a good girl to love me
I'm the richest man in the world
