Satisfied Mind (Baez Joan)

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 a hundred with a satisfied mind. 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 I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
