Richest One

This song is by Resurrection Band and appears on the album Lament (1995).

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 felt inside.

I'd be the richest...the richest one in the world,
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...the richest man in the world.

Yes, I am, (yes, I am)
Yes, I am, (yes, I am)
I believe I am, (yes, I am)
Surely I am. (yes, 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 defence.

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'd be the richest one)
I would be the richest, (I'd be the richest one)
Lord knows I believe I am the richest, (yes, yes, the richest)
I'm the richest one in the world.

Yes, 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.
