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 for to get a start in life's game But 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

Jennifur Sun from RamonaLove the song and the lyrics, especially about money not buying back your youth when you are old or a friend when you are lonely.
Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn October 9th 1955, a weeklong tour of the Louisiana Hayride, headlined by Porter Wagoner, played its first date at the Cherry Springs Dance Hall in Cherryspring, Texas... At the time his "Satisfied Mind" was at #5 on Billboard's C&W Best Seller in Stores chart; and at #3 on both Billboards’ C&W Most Played in Jukeboxes chart and Most Played by Jockeys chart... Two of the other acts to accompanied Mr. Wagoner on the tour were Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, and Elvis' "I Forgot to Remember to Forget" was at #11 on Billboard's C&W Most Played by Jockeys chart... And on the Billboard's C&W Territorial Hits chart for Memphis, Tennessee; Johnny Cash's "Cry Cry Cry" was at #4.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
