"A Satisfied Mind" as written by and 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 that it's so had to find
one rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.

Once I was winning in fortune and fame.
Everything that I dreamed for
to get a start in life's game.
Then 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 will leave theirs no doubt.
But theres one thing for certain when it comes my time.
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.

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

    General CommentI love this song, which is strange 'cause I usually don't really like Johhny Cash. It is totally true. When you have money, you think of all that you can do with it, and you think you'll be satisified. But in the end, when you do have money, you never actually do the things you say you will. Those people with all the money in the world could do so much, but they're worried about other things, and in the end no one is ever satisfied.

    General Commentthis is beautiful because it is true. lots of people don\'t learn this lesson before they die, and therefore die with an unsatisfied mind.
    i hope johnny cash died with a satisfied mind.
