Adapted from my favorite real cowboy singer Chris Ledoux:


COWBOY UP

I was a new kid on the circuit
Wall Street dreams in my eyes
But the trade I took was plenty rank
Much to my surprise
It did a double reverse split
I landed on my head
Then an  old trader limped out of the pit
Leaned over me and said

You gotta cowboy up
When your stocks tank and go down
Get right back in the saddle
As soon as they hit the ground
You heard that the tough get goin'

When the goin' gets tough
Around here what we say is
Boy you better cowboy up

By the end of  last quarter
They said I was among the best
So I proudly went to see the boss
Hopin' he would be impressed
But he said I was through

My volatility was far too high
so he gave my job to better dressed guy
But before the first tear could fall
These words came back again

You gotta cowboy up
When your stocks tank and go down

Get right back in the saddle

As soon as they hit the ground
You heard that the tough get goin'
When the goin' gets tough
Around here what we say is
Boy you better cowboy up

Well its not an easy lesson
To stay with the drift
But its the only way to go
Whenever you bite the dust
