3. Satisfied Mind

Satisfied Mind is a classic country and gospel song that has been covered by various artists over the years. It was originally written by Joe "Red" Hayes and Jack Rhodes in the early 1950s. The song has become a standard in the realm of country and folk music.

Darrell Scott, like many other artists, has covered "Satisfied Mind" in his own style. The song often explores the theme of finding contentment and satisfaction in life, emphasizing the importance of non-materialistic values over wealth and possessions.

This track does not appear on any on the Darrell Scott albums that I've looked into so I'm not sure where you'd find a copy. It may have just been a song he played at various concerts etc and never laid down an actual track in the music studio.
