Jean Shepard Satisfied Mind Lyrics

Last updated: 11/17/2007 10:00:00 AM

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 wading in fortune and fame
Everything that I dreamed for to get a start in life's game
But suddenly it happened that I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind
[ guitar ]

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

A tribute to Porter Wagner | Reviewer: Bob Owens | 11/17/2007

Satisfied mind has been a favorite of mine since childhood and I remember hearing Porter Wagner perform the song on the "Ozark Jubelee" TV program when I was growing up in East Tennessee.
I've also heard Jean Shepherd perform it and it is a wonderful song to listen to. The lyrics are profound and transmit good principals for all to heed.
