A Satisfied Mind

Boy, do I ever love the music of Bryan Bowers, who is the acknowledged virtuoso of the auto-harp, and knows how to make love to a song as well.

This is but one of the thoughtful songs he signs.

How many times
Have you heard someone say,
If I had his money
I'd do things my way?

How little they know
It's so hard to find
One rich man in ten
With a satisfied mind

Once he had money
Fortune and fame
Oh he had everything
He had a start in life's game

Oh, but one day it happened
He lost every dime
Now he's 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 heart that's grown cold

And the wealthiest person
Is a pauper at times
Compared to the man
With a satisfied mind

Now when my life is over
And my time has run out
All my friends and my loved ones
I'll leave them no doubt

Ah the 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
