Subject: Lyr Add: SATISFIED MIND (R Hayes & J Rhodes)^^^

I didn't find this great song in the database.
-Joe Offer-

SATISFIED MIND
(Red Hayes & Jack Rhodes)

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 or woman with a satisfied mind

Once I was lucky in fortune and fame
Had all that I needed to make a start in life's game
then suddenly it happened, I lost every dime.
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind.


For 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
The wealthiest person 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 relations, I'll leave them no doubt
But one thing's for certain, when it comes to my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind


One thing's for certain, when it comes my time,
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind


(in D) A G D - / / GA A D - / A G D -

©1955, Fort Knox Music Co.
recorded by Joan Baez, John McCutcheon, Bob Dylan, Ian & Sylvia, Mary McCaslin, and Bryan Bowers. ^^^

I associate this great oldie with Porter Waggoner. The tablature is reversed, no? "How many times, etc." starts in the 4-chord, then 5, then 1...right?

My mind might be mush right now, but doesn't this share a tune with Great Speckled Bird?

Campfire, you're thinking of "Wild Side of Life" (Hank Thompson), which was a remake of "Great Speckled Bird", which I think was in turn a remake of "I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes". Great tunes never die.

James.

Thanks for the correction. I guess I was right about my mind being mush, tho... ;) I shouldn't try to think on my lunch hour!

Joe-

I have this in a book somewhere. I'm afraid its at my father's, tho, 6 hours north. I've been through all my music books here and didn't find it (altho I found lots of other stuff I'd forgotten I had. Ended up playing 'stead of computering)

I take it you don't have the RUS teaching tapes? I tried playing it from the RUS chords and trying to pick it out note by note but wasn't completely happy with it. I'll keep working on it. I'd like to learn the guitar for it anyway. We sing it quite often at camp, but I don't play it...yet.

Ooops - missed your message, Campfire. I transcribed the lyrics and chords from Rise Up Singing, but I often don't like the chord suggestions in that book and don't know music well enough to come up with my own. I was hoping somebody could post a MIDI for inclusion in the database.

I think Porter Wagoner's lyrics were a little different:

SATISFIED MIND
(as sung by Porter Wagoner)

How many times have you heard someone say,
"If I had his money, I could 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 wading in fortune and fame,
Everything that I dreamed of to get a start in life's game.
Then 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 life has ended, 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 recorded this one for Folk Legacy back in, I think, 1975? It's still available.

I'm not satisfied with the information we have on this song. I learned it from a performance by John McCutcheon. He accompanied himself on autoharp, and the song sounded timeless - not a commercial production from 1955. Isn't there somebody who can tell us something wonderful about this song?

You're absolutely correct, Joe, it's not a commercial production from 1955. It's a commercial production from 1954, according to https://secondhandsongs.com/work/3837
