 Just a broken-down speculator, all down on his luck
He's been through the best of his P&L

On a long lonesome credit line and an old win x86
Crossed the market-makers before throwing his towel in the ring

He was all around speculator back in '99…from the top it's been a long way
down
Since the whiskey and women started winning his time
They rode him high and hard to the ground

But he remembers the thrill of being a winner in the days of his first Mad
Money shows
But there was something about winning that didn't last forever

Maybe tomorrow things will get better
if the margin clerk lets loose of his soul
he'll be the all around speculator again

So he rolls up a smoke and he sips his Old Crow
Wipes the whiskers that cover his chin
And he grins as he dreams of the old markets
Now he's the all around speculator again


And the original
—-
Just a broken down cowboy all down on his luck
He's been through the best of his friends

On a long lonesome highway in an old pickup truck
Crossed Texas like a hot dusty wind

He was all around cowboy back in '49
from the top it's been a long way down
Since the whiskey and ladies started winning his time
They rode him high and hard to the ground

But he remembers the thrill of being a winner
back in the days of his first rodeo
But there was something about winning that didn't last forever
Maybe tomorrow things will get better
if the devil lets loose of his soul
he'll be the all around cowboy again

So he rolls up a smoke and he sips his Old Crow
Wipes the whiskers that cover his old chin
And he grins as he dreams of the old rodeos…
now he's the all around cowboy again
