When it comes my time

How many times have you heard someone say
If I had his money I would 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've 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 and 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.

- Red Hayes and Jack Rhodes
