Satisfied Mind

Written by Red Hayes and 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, it's so hard to find One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind Once I was living in fortune and fame And everything that I dreamed of to get a start in life's game But suddenly it happened, I lost every dime But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind 'Cause money can't buy back your youth when you're old Or a friend when you're lonely Or a love that's 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 I'll leave, there's no doubt But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind


WEBMISTRESS speculates:

While Lindsey didn't write this song, I think he picked it because he related to the contrast between wealth and happiness. He covers a similar song on Out of the Cradle called All My Sorrows.
