Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around your corner, your partner dopaso
Partner left and the corner by the right and the partner by the left you know
Make an allemande thar, the men back in and you back on down the line
Slip the clutch, left allemande, you've got to weave on down the line
Wind and weave, around you go until you meet your lady
Do a dosado and you promenade her home
I've got a hump back mule, a plow and a 'tater patch
Eggs that are going to hatch someday
I've got the Lord above and a good girl to love me
I'm the richest man in the world


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

1 & 3 square thru 4 hands around you go
Go all the way and dosado the corner girl you know
Swing thru 2 by 2 and the girls fold you do
Peel the top and the men move up and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel go straight across and sweep 1/4 more now
Swing the corner lady and you promenade her home
I've got a hump back mule, a plow and a 'tater patch
Eggs that are going to hatch someday
I've got the Lord above and a good girl to love me
I'm the richest man in the world

Richest Man In The World
 
 

Chorus:
I've got a hump back 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.

Chorus

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

Chorus

Lyrics by Boudleaux Bryant.
Recorded by Eddy Arnold.
