Satisfied Mind

Written by Red Hayes & Jack Rhodes.

How many times have you heard someone say,
"If I had his money, I could do things my way."
But little they know, itís so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.

Once I was living in fortune and fame,
Everything that I dreamed of to get a start in lifeís game.
Then suddenly it happened, I lost every dime.
But Iím richer by far with a satisfied mind.

ĎCause money canít buy back your youth when youíre old,
Or a friend when youíre lonely
Or a love thatís grown cold.
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times,
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind.

When life has ended, my time has run out,
My friends and my loved ones Iíll leave, thereís no doubt.
But one thing for certain
When it comes my time,
Iíll leave this old world
With a satisfied mind.
