Poor Rich Man


I'm a poor rich man, I'm a poor rich man.
Oh you see it really happened to me, I'm a millionaire.
I know that I am poor but I've got a lot more
Than many rich folks that I know.
I've got a Home in the sky that money didn't buy,
And I'm a poor rich man.

Verse 1

We usually judge a man by the clothes that he wears,
By the car he's ridin' in.
And you can usually tell if he's doin' very well by the house he's livin' in.
But I am here to say that it don't work that way
With everybody I know.
Because I just got acquainted with some poor rich folks
A little while ago

Verse 2

When a man is rich with this world's goods
He's usually got a lot of friends.
They all want to try to live so high
When they know that it's a sin.
But even if I could I don't believe I would
Want the riches of this old world.
And when it's time to go, I'll be glad to know
That I'm a poor, poor rich man.

Jeff and Sherie Easter sing it the most I have heard. They do it really fast though. Not crazy about the speed version.

"I'm a poor rich man" was one of my favorite gospels songs..while living in
Georgia there was a group by the name of " The Crossroads quartet" with
lead singer Ronnie Calhoun or Jim Hatcher..they had a number of records
and I still play them...Another song they did a great job on was " Rose of Sharon"
I can't find the lyrics they had on that song but found a lot of others...where could I get "Their" lyrics...

When I was 10 years old, I went to a Pentacostal church in Visallia, CA in the early 70's and there was a couple who sang this song and I still remembered the chorus but couldn't remember the rest.  Thanks so much for the rest of the words!!!  My family has heard me hum through this song because I didn't have the words LOL

The writer of this song was Bud Chambers. In his tent revival's I used to listen to this song while him being under the anointing.
I was blessed by playing guitar in some of his crusades.
