DT Lyrics:









Subject: gospel - I'm Satisfied
From: Giac
Date: 06 May 02 - 09:16 PM

A friend has asked help in finding these lyrics. He says the chorus is something like:

I'm satisfied, I'm satisfied
No trouble will ever get me down
With my eyes closed in death
With my Jesus I'll be at rest
And that is why I'm satisfied

It ends with:

"I've got that old time religion, I've got that old time religion; and that is why I'm satisfied..."

I've had no luck with searches of the DT and of the forum. Any help appreciated.

This would make a third song by this title-- I've heard two others. I'll have to see if I have it in my sound files, to transcribe.

Thanks, Susan, I've heard others, too, but not with this chorus, or the "old-time religion" line. Appreciate your help.

From: masato sakurai

SATISFIED
(By Martha Carson, 1951)

I've got that old-time religion
Got that oldtime religion
Satisfied, I'm satisfied.

You ask me if I'm happy, if I have peace within
If I'm worried about tomorrow when I reach my journey's end
Well, I'm satisfied with my Jesus, when He knocks, I'll let Him in
He'll go with me through the valley, for I know He is my friend.

Satisfied, satisfied
No troubles can ever get me down
For when my eyes are closed in death
With my Jesus I'll be at rest
Then you'll know I'm satisfied.

I've got that old-time religion
Got that old-time religion
Satisfied, I'm satisfied.

Now my friends, they all forsake me, and they turn me from their door
If they sow no seeds of kindness, make the thorns in my path grow
Oh, it won't matter over yonder when I've reached the other side
For I'm gonna sit down my Jesus, satisfied, satisfied.

Satisfied, satisfied
No troubles can ever get me down
For when my eyes are closed in death
With my Jesus I'll be at rest
Then you'll know I'm satisfied.

I've got that old-time religion
Got that oldtime religion
Satisfied, I'm satisfied.

You may be thinking of this song

MARTHA CARSON-SATISFIED

Irene Amburgey (Martha Carson) was next to eldest of six children born in Neon, Kentucky on May 19, 1921. She has been called "The First lady of Gospel Music" and with good reason. Martha would be the undisputed reigning queen of gospel during the 1950's.
Her song "Satisfied" would gain her many awards, place her name in the Smithsonian for her million selling album, and gain her entrance into the Grand Ole Opry family.
In her early teens, Martha was a skilled guitar player in the Sunshine Sister band. Martha, Jean, and Berthy would be one of the first all female sister string bands in the country when they began in 1936. They went on to perform on the era's most popular radio stations and barn dances throughout West Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia, Virginia, and the Carolinas.
In the early 1940, Martha married James Roberts while helping to form the WSB Barn Dance in Atlanta. The duo would adopt "Carson" as their stage names. Martha played the guitar, and James played the mandolin over the Atlanta airways.
They were among the most popular radio personalities of the day. James and Martha would record several spiritual songs together under the Capitol Record label which gained them great notoriety and fame throughout the south.
However, in 1950, while working in Knoxville, Tenn. at WNOX radio, James and Martha would split up as husband and wife. The following year would be emotionally hard for Martha.
Agonizing over her divorce, as Martha was riding to a booking with Bill Carlisle, the thought came to her-
"I'm satisfied and God is satisfied with me."
"All the sudden these words started coming to me. I found one of Bill's old blank checks in the floor of the car and wrote out the words on the back of it," says Martha.
One of the first million selling gospel songs sung by a woman was thus conceived. In 1951 Martha recorded her first solo session for Capitol with Chet Atkins, Bill Carlisle, Jean and Berthy as musicians.
The song "Satisfied" would be noted by the Smithsonian Institute for its popularity and number of album sales.
From 1951-54 Martha would record 12 songs for the Capitol label as a solo artist. In 1952 Martha would be asked to perform on the Grand Ole Opry which is where she met her second husband, Xavier Cossee.
From late 1954 into 1955, Martha toured the south with an up and coming artist known as Elvis Presley. At this time Elvis was recording with the Sun label and had only one record released. "He asked me to show him the move I did at the close of my show," says Martha,
"I would go down on one knee and hold the mic stand at an angle. He went on to do that pose a lot on his shows," Martha recalls.
She appeared on some of the earliest televised editions of the Opry, and made appearances on The Steve Allen Show, Tennessee Ernie Ford Show, Arthur Godfrey Show, and The Ralph Emery Show.
Martha had her own collection of spiritual songs released in 1954 by Acuff and Rose, "Martha Carson's Spiritual Song Folio."
Martha recorded two albums for RCA, "Journey to The Sky" and "Rock-a-my-Soul."
In 1996, the Kentucky legislator awarded Martha an Honorable Citation for her contribution to country and gospel music.
A Highway was named in her honor near her home town of Neon.
The song "Satisfied" has been recorded by some 165 different artists.
I have MP3 or RealAudio of it..

You said it, Susan!

Thank you, thank you everyone. I'll email these lyrics to my friend immediately as he needs them for a gig.

Irishajo, Masato and Gene -- you people are amazing. Once again I bow in your general directions -- and in the direction of Max for giving me a place to ask and you a place to answer.

When you "save link as" in RealPlayer, often you are only saving a link to the song, not the sound file. If it's only 1-3 K, it's not a sound file, but there is a program that can even convert that, as long as the song is still online. The Record Lady files ARE sound files, but converted to MP3s they become portable. The program I am using also, I think, lets me convert them again to CD audio to make CDs that will play in a regular CD player.

Irishajo -- I'm glad, too. It is fairly easy to play. I'm happy my friend asked about it because we've gotten some good information and links.

I'm also interested in this MP3 business. I'm totally ignorant on that subject but want to learn more.

Thanks for all the contributions to this thread, folks.
