"Richest Man on Earth" as written by and Don Schlitz Paul Overstreet....
I've heard tell of millionaires
And billionaires and such
Who gathered all their treasures
And still did not have enough

If money could buy peace of mind
I guess they'd have it all
But all the money in the world
Wouldn't hold you when you fall

[CHORUS:]
We've got a roof over our head
And the kids have all been fed
And the women I love most
Lies close beside me in our bead
Lord, give me the eyes to see
Exactly what it's worth
And I will be the richest man on earth

Lord, when I wish I had the things
That you gave someone else
I pray that you'll forgive me
For just thinkin' of myself

I haven't been as thankful
As I know I ought to be
I should be more then satisfied
With all you've given me

(REPEAT CHORUS)
Bridge: One thing is for certain
It don't matter when you die
If you had a million
Or if you just got by

(REPEAT CHORUS)
Yes, I will be the richest man on earth
