A Satisfied Mind
(Joe 'Red' Hayes / Jack Rhodes)
It's Alive, 1978
These lyrics are from Jody Nix, whose father used to play with Joe Hayes.
How many times have you heard someone say,
If I had his money I would do things my way,
But little they know, that it's so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.
Once I was waiting in fortune and fame,
Everything that I dreamed for 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.
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, and my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones, I leave there's no doubt
But there's one thing for certain when it comes my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.
