Satisfied Mind

Satisfied Mind

Lucinda Williams

How many times
Have you heard someone say
If I had his money
I'd do things my way
How little they know
That it's so hard to find
One rich man in a hundred
With a satisfied mind

Once I was living
In fortune and fame
And everything I could dream of
To get a start in life's game
And suddenly it happened
I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far
With a satisfied mind

No money can buy back
Your youth when your old
Or a friend when you're lonely
Or a heart that's grown cold
And the world's richest man
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'll leave there's no doubt
But there's one thing 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
