Best song lyrics in the world

Well I guess you guys can reply to this with your favorite song lyrics so we can make this into a thread...and sorry Mods if you want this in the movies/music section..I just figured more people would notice it here. Anyways I really wanted to put the lyrics to this song up and recommend ya'll DL and/or listen to it at some point in your life if you haven't already. It was written a long time ago...but re-recorded many times over the years by many artists, like Johnny Cash.

The version of the song I love the most is rare and hard to find but it was performed by the late Jeff Buckley, an Orange County up and comer with awesome blues guitar skills and a singing voice unmatched by many. He had a 2.8 octave pitch range. Tragically he was still pretty young when he drowned...probably in his 20's.

A Satisfied Mind

How many times

have you heard someone say

if I had his money

I'd 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 living

in fortune and fame

and all that I dreamed of

to get a start in life's game

then suddenly it happened

I lost every dime

but I'm richer by far

with a satisfied mind



'cause money won't buy back

the youth when you're old

or a friend when you're lonely

or a heart that's grown cold

the wealthiest person

is a pauper at times

compared to the man

with a satisfied mind



well, my life is ended

all timed but out

my friends and my loved ones

I'll even slow down

but there's one thing for certain

when it comes my time

I'll leave this old world

with a satisfied mind
