The album back cover shows “Richer Man Than I” as “Richer Men Than I.” “What a Wonderful World” was misidentified on the album as the song popularized by Sam Cooke (”Don’t know much about history, ...”), written by Lou Adler, Herb Alpert and Barbara Campbell (Sam Cooke’s pseudonym), and not this Thiele/Weiss song first recorded by Louis Armstrong (”I see trees of green, red roses, too, ...and I think to myself, what a wonderful world”). “I’m a Drifter,” with its message of leaving but with hope of returning, became the closing theme song of “The Bobby Goldsboro Show” television show and a frequent finale/encore song at concert performances.
No, there could never be a man who had more than I ‘Cause I’ve got the earth and the sky And is all the gold in the world Worth the smile of a happy little girl? - “Richer Man Than I” Tomorrow is forgotten I erase the coming day Tomorrow is forgotten And I’ll live in yesterday - “Tomorrow is Forgotten” Let’s make the most of time before the break of day But don’t try to make me stay if I don’t want to Because I’ve got to keep on searching for that dream And you can’t bind me with the simple words “I love you” - “I’m a Drifter” And you realize that somehow he’s a savior In his tattered clothes, to them he is a king ‘Cause he gives them one more day that they can live for And the promise of the joy that it will bring And you wonder what will happen in the morning When they find that they no longer have their king - “Hoboes and Kings”
