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)

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

Lyrics by Boudleaux Bryant.
Recorded by Eddy Arnold.
