Satisfied Mind Lyrics - Jeff Buckley

Review The Song (5)



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.

Money can't buy back all your youth when you're old,
a friend when you're lonely, or peace to your soul.
The wealthiest person, is a pauper at times
compared to the man with a satisfied mind.

When my life is over and my time has run out,
my friends and my loved ones, I will 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.
But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time,
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind mind mind, mind mind,
satisfied mind.

My research indicates that Porter Wagoner was the first to record the song written by Joe Hays and Jack Rhodes. The song became identified with Wagoner and erroneusly attributed as the writer. It benefited Wagoner's singing career greatly.

It's a great song recorded by Porter Wagoner back in 1956. Jeff Buckley's cover version is slightly different as it is a cut down version, however more powerful than the original country music version. Every time I listen to this song it reminds me of my mortality and how great Jeff Buckley to render his version. I have chosen this song to be played at my funeral, and I have sung my own cover version. RIP Jeff..You are the man!!

In a nutshell what a fabulous version of this song. He had such a range that made this song so fantastic. Cash has it on kill bill also very good but, this song is made for someone with range.

The original was by Bob Marley. It's an excellent arrangement by Buckley though. Perfect.



AWESOME | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/1/05

THIS IS JUST GENUIUS, ITS DEFINATELY A COVER BUT I CANT SEEM TO FIND OUT WHO DID IT ORIGINALLY. ANYWAY THIS IS JUST GUTWRENCHING, TEARJERKING, BRILLIANTNESS FROM ONE OF MUSICS SHORT-LIVED GREAT MUSICIANS. A MUST FOR ANY BUCKLEY FAN, AVAILABLE ON "SKETCHES FOR MY SWEETHEART THE DRUNK"
