Satisfied Mind

Words and Music by R. Hayes and J. Rhodes

E        A  B7                        E
How many times have you heard someone say

             B7        A            E
If I had his money I'd do things my way

                A  B7                     E
But little they know that it's so hard to find

                B7  A                E
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind

                A  B7                           E
For money can't buy back your youth when you're old

                        B7     A                       E
Or a friend when you're lonely or a heart that's grown cold

               A  B7                 E
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times

                B7  A                E
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind

E          A  B7                 E
Once I was living in fortune and fame

                 A  B7                              E
I had all that I dreamed of to get a start in lifes game

                 B7       A                E
Then suddenly it happened and I lost every dime

                  B7  A                E
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind
