                                  Richest One
                   from the Resurrection Band album, Lament
                        Words and Music by Glenn Kaiser
 
G A C   G A C
 
             G     A          C                     G
1       If I had a penny for every town I've known
                       A          C                     G
        And if I had a nickel for every song I've sung
                   A           C                      G
        If I had a quarter for every tear I've cried
                       A          C
        And if I had a dollar for every hurt I've felt inside
                   G     A C                   G     A C
        I'd be the richest, richest one in the world,
                                     G     A C
        (Spoken)  richest one in the world.
 
             G     A        C                            G
2       If I had a ruby for every drop of blood you shed
                        A           C                 G
        And if I had an emerald for every single debt
                        A          C                  G
        Had a  piece of silver for every sin you took
                       A           C
        And if I had a diamond for every beautiful truth in your book
                   G     A C                   G     AC G A
        I'd be the richest, richest man in the world
 
               G A        C               G A           C    G
Bridge  Yes, I am; yes, I am; I believe I am; surely, I am...
 
 
                   D       C                     G
3       When I was lost, a stranger to innocence
                   D             C                      G
        When I was guilty in the face of such evidence
                   D          C                            G
        When I was condemned, that's when the veil was rent
                   D           C                  G
        When I was broken, you came to my defense
 
 
(quietly)
                   A              C                      G
        If I had a ruby for every drop of blood you shed
                        A           C                 G
        And if I had an emerald for every single debt
                            A          C                        G
        If I had a piece of silver for every sin you took, Lord
                   A                 C                            G
        If I had a diamond for every beautiful truth in your book
                       G     A C               G      A C
        I would be the richest, I would be the richest,
 
        Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
        G     A C                G                                  AC G
        I believe I am the richest, I'm the richest one in the world.
 AC G C        G AC G A                              G    AC G C
        Yes, I am.  Lord, I'm the richest one in the world
                                        G AC
        Oh, the richest one in the world
                                              G
        I'm the richest one in the whole wide world
 
 
A couple of notes:  First, the song sounds best when you tune down a half 
step and play it in F# instead of G.  Second, this is a blues song, so some
improvising is called for in terms of timing of words with the music, etc.

Have fun.
