OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four men promenade go walkin'
Box the gnat and swing
Promenade your lady go 'round the land
Boys roll back, left allemande, weave the ring
I know that I'm poor, but I've got a lot more
Dosado, then promenade
For when it's time to go, I'll be glad to know
I'm a poor rich man


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru count to four hands go
'Round your corner, dosado one time
Swing thru and then, boys run right
Tag the line, now cloverleaf
Four girls square thru 3/4
Swing your corner, promenade
I've got a mansion in the sky, that money can't buy
I'm a poor rich man

Poor Rich Man
 
 

I'm a poor rich man, yes, I'm a poor rich man.
Oh you see it really happened to me, I'm a millionaire.
I know that I am poor but I've got a lot more
Than many rich folks that I know.
I've got a home in the sky that money couldn't buy,
And I'm a poor rich man.

We usually judge a man by the clothes that he wears,
By the car he's ridin' in.
And you can usually tell if he's doin' very well by the house he's livin' in.
But I am here to say that it don't work that way
With everybody I know.
Because I just got acquainted with some poor rich folks
A little while ago

I'm a poor rich man, I'm a poor, poor rich man.
Oh you see it really happened to me, I'm a millionaire.
I know that I am poor but I've got a lot more
Than many rich folks that I know.
I've got a home in the sky that money couldn't buy,
And I'm a poor rich man.

When a man is rich with this world's goods
He's usually got a lot of friends.
They all want to try to live so high
When they know that it's a sin.
But even if I could, I don't believe I would
Want the riches of this old world.
And when it's time to go, I'll be glad to know
That I'm a poor, poor rich man.

I'm a poor rich man, I'm a poor, poor rich man.
Oh you see it really happened to me, I'm a millionaire.
I know that I am poor but I've got a lot more
Than many rich folks that I know.
I've got a home in the sky that money didn't buy,
And I'm a poor rich man.

Lyrics by Bud Chambers.
Recorded by The Cathedral Quartet; Jeff and Sherie Easter.
