The guitar's a little flat in the recording, so tune down if you want to play along.

          G                        D
  I sunk all of my money into Swiss gold
            C                  D
  And I watched the markets slide
             G                     D
  And I stood on the edge of the Pacific
                      C                       D
  And watched the hypodermic needles coming in with the tide
           Em                  A
  There are two guys just outside of Chicago
C                   D
  Looking for me tonight,
              G                        D
  But Randy Johnson throws a baseball 97 miles an hour and 
C        D         G
  I'm gonna be alright

I had a fully loaded junk bond portfolio that
C D
Didn't work out like it was supposed to
G D
There's a mountain of money in the bond market
C D
That I can't seem to get close to
Em A
I've been headed down the road to ruin,
C D
The end is nowhere in sight
G D
But Randy Johnson throws a baseball 97 miles an hour and 
C D G
I'm gonna be alright
