A SATISFIED MIND

Iíll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.
Iím richer by far with a satisfied mind

A SATISFIED MIND



How many times have

You heard someone say

If I had his money

I could do things my way

But little they know

And itís so hard to find

One rich man in ten

With a satisfied mind

Once I was waiting

In fortune and fame

Everything that I dreamed of

To get a start in liveís game

But suddenly it happened

I lost every dime

But Iím richer by far

With a satisfied mind

Money canít buy back

Your youth when itís old

Or a friend when you lonesome

Or a love thatís grown cold

The wealthiest person

Is a pauper at times

Compared to the man

With a satisfied mind

When life is over

My time has run out

My friends and my loved ones

Iíll leave thereís no doubt

But thereís one thingís for certain

When it comes my time

Iíll leave this old world

With a satisfied mind

How many times have

You heard someone say



PERFORMANCES


1999.11.09,
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA

The wealthiest person is a pauper at times






On November 9th 1999, just three songs
after "HALLELUJAH I'M READY TO GO",
Bob treated a lucky Philadelphia audience
to the first ever live performance
of "A SATISFIED MIND", the opening song
of his 1980 album "Saved".
The song was delivered brilliantly,
picking up the "ready to go" theme
with the fitting last verse.


In November 2014 another version recorded by
Bob Dylan in 1967 was officially released,
as Track 3 on Disc 5 of "The Bootleg Series Vol. 11
The Basement Tapes Complete (Deluxe edition)".

Biblical references:


~ Romans 8 ~


To set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.


~ Romans 12 ~

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed
by the renewal of your mind, that by testing
you may discern what is the will of God,
what is good and acceptable and perfect.
