"satisfied mind"

There is an old song. A really old song. It has always affected me deeply. My dear old Daddy claims it was written and sung by Jimmie Rodgers. I say Red Foley. Neither of us will look it up for fear of being wrong and having to admit it.

I will post the lyrics, just the chorus, and say no more. Name of the song, "satisfied mind". We agree on that.

money can't buy back

your youth when you're old

a friend when you're lonely

or a love that's grown cold

the wealthiest man

is a pauper, at times

compared to the man

with a satisfied mind
