Wilburn Brothers — Satisfied Mind lyrics

How many times have you heard someone say
If I had his money I could do things my way
But little they know that is so hard to find one rich man in ten with a satisfied mind
Once I was waiting in fortune and fame
Everything that I longed 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 my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones I'll leave them no doubt
But there's one thing for certain when it comes my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
