Richest One

Artist: Resurrection Band | Album: Lament | © 1995 Grrr recordS

If I had a penny for every town I’ve known
And if I had a nickel for every song I’ve sung
If I had a quarter for every tear I’ve cried
And if I had a dollar for every hurt I’ve felt inside
I’d be the richest, richest one in the world,
(Spoken) richest one in the world.

If I had a ruby for every drop of blood you shed
And if I had an emerald for every single debt
Had a piece of silver for every sin you took
And if I had a diamond for every beautiful truth in your book
I’d be the richest, richest man in the world

Bridge:
Yes, I am; yes, I am; I believe I am; surely, I am…
When I was lost, a stranger to innocence
When I was guilty in the face of such evidence
When I was condemned, that’s when the veil was rent
When I was broken, you came to my defense

(quietly)
If I had a ruby for every drop of blood you shed
And if I had an emerald for every single debt
If I had a piece of silver for every sin you took, Lord
If I had a diamond for every beautiful truth in your book
I would be the richest, I would be the richest,
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
I believe I am the richest, I’m the richest one in the world.
Yes, I am. Lord, I’m the richest one in the world
Oh, the richest one in the world

I’m the richest one in the whole wide world
