Steemit open mic week 101!
This is The Hodler, written by @DeanLogic for his weekly song challenge :)

Lyrics:

On a warm summer's eve

At a bit conference in Boulder

I met up with the hodlr

We were both too tired to sleep

So we took turns a-starin'

At our Ledgers in the darkness

The boredom overtook us,

And he began to speak

He said, "Nay, I've made a life

Out of hackin’ people's wallets

Knowin' what their coins were

By the way they trusted wi-fi

So if you don't mind me sayin'

I can see you're out of Bitcoin

For a taste of your whiskey

I'll give you some advice"

So I handed him my bottle

And he drank down my last swallow

Then he flipped open Binance

And authenticated thrice

And the night got deathly quiet

And his face lost all expression

He said, "If you're gonna play the game, girl

You gotta pay the hodlr’s price

You've got to know when to hold 'em

Know when to troll 'em

Know when to walk away

And know when to run

You never count your crypto

When they’re sittin' in the exchange

There be time enough for countin'

When the transactions done

Every hodler knows

That the secret to survivin'

Is knowin' what to trade away

And knowin' what to keep

'Cause every coin’s a winner

And every coin’s a loser

And the best that you can hope for is to

is not getting in too deep

And when he finished speakin'

He turned back toward the window

Shut down his ledger

And faded off to sleep

And somewhere in the madness

The hodler he broke even

But in his final words

I found a token I could keep

You've got to know when to hold 'em

Know when to troll 'em

Know when to walk away

And know when to run

You never count your crypto

When they’re sittin' in the exchange

There be time enough for countin'

When the transactions done

Impressive American country accent! Very catchy Crypto cover.
