Non - Mises Thought for the Day

Satisfied Mind
(Red Hayes - Jack Rhodes)
© '54 Fort Knox Music, BMI / Trio Music, BMI

How many times have you heard someone say
"If I had his money, I could do things my way"
Little they know that it's so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.

Listen to Porter Wagner version.

Once I was waitin' for fortune and fame
Everything that I dreamed for to get a start in life's game
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 my life is ended, my time has run out
My trials and my loved ones, I'll leave them no doubt
But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.

Beautiful song. The harmony and steel guitar are pure country. And great lyrics. Please post more songs.

I wish I could have found the Byrds version!
But let's make the Non- Mises thought
a tradition.
