​The Richest Man

This song is by Counting Crows.

This song is a cover of "Richest Man" by ​C.J. Chenier.
If I had a dollar, for every time
You broke my heart, messed up my mind
Well I'd be the richest man
I'd be the richest man, in the world

If bad times paid interest
I'd have you to thank
Well I'd be driving a new car
Have money in the bank
And I'd be the richest man
I'd be the richest man, in the world

Well baby, baby, money can't buy love
The kind I dream of, is so hard to find
For a good woman's touch in the morning when I rise
Well baby, well I'd give up every single dime

Oh, money can't buy love
The kind I dream of, is so hard to find
For a good woman's touch in the morning when I rise
Well baby, well I'd give up every single dime

If tear drops were diamonds from the African mines
If heartaches were silver, my whole life would shine
And I'd be the richest man
I'd be the richest man, in the world
Baby, baby
