Porter Wagoner sings his 1955 #1 smash hit "A Satisfied Mind" live at the Grand Ole Opry in May 1967. Songwriters were Joe Hayes and Jack Rhodes.

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 wadin' in fortune and fame
Ev'rything that I dreamed for to get a start in life's game
But suddenly it happened I lost ev'ry dime
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind

[ steel ]

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 ol' world with a satisfied mind
