Satisfied Mind

Satisfied Mind
(Red Hayes & Jack Rhodes)

How many times did you hear someone say
If I had his money, I'd do things my way
But little they know, that it's so hard to find
One rich man or woman with a satisfied mind

cho: For money can't buy back your youth when you're old
     Or a friend when you're lonely, or a heart that's grown cold
     The wealthiest person is a pauper at times
     Compared to the man with a satisfied mind

Once I was lucky in fortune and fame
Had all that I needed to make a start in life's game
then suddenly it happened, I lost every dime.
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind.
My life is over and my time has run out
My friends and relations, I'll leave them no doubt
But one thing's for certain, when it comes to my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind

One thing's for certain, when it comes my time,
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind

(in D) A G D - / / GA A D - / A G D -

recorded by Joan Baez, John McCutcheon, Bob Dylan,
Ian & Sylvia, Mary McCaslin, and Bryan Bowers. Plus
every country singer I can think of.
 (c)1955, Fort Knox Music Co.
