Paul Overstreet — Richest Man On Earth lyrics

Well, 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 won't hold you when you fall.

Chorus:
We've got a roof over our heads
And the kids have all been fed
And the woman I love most lies close beside me in our bed
Lord, give me the eyes to see exactly what it's worth
And I will be the richest man on earth.

Lord, when I wished 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 than satisfied with all you've given me.

Chorus
We've got a roof over our heads
And the kids have all been fed
And the woman I love most lies close beside me in our bed
Lord, give me the eyes to see exactly what it's worth
And I will be the richest man on earth.

One thing is for certain it don't matter when you die
If you had a million or if you just got by.

Chorus
We've got a roof over our heads
And the kids have all been fed
And the woman I love most lies close beside me in our bed
Lord, give me the eyes to see exactly what it's worth
And I will be the richest man on earth.

Yes, I will be the richest man on earth...
