A Satisfied Mind Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

How many times have you heard someone say
"If I had his money, I'd do things my way"
But little they know that it's so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind

Once I was winning in fortune and fame
Everything that I dreamed of 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

When life is over, my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones, I'll leave, there's no doubt
But one thing for certain when it comes, my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind
