"The Big Unit"
The Mountain Goats

Transcribed by Jon A.

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

G  D  C  G (x2)

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