THE COMPANY I KEEP - DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS


G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9  G Cadd9

G         D              Cadd9          G      C
  My Mama told me, "Your life is such a wreck"
                                                G    C
"You're dumber than dog shit", is what my Daddy said
                              G             C    G
I was just thirteen when they showed me the door
             D                 Cadd9         G    Cadd9 G
I keep their picture but don't look at it no more


G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9

G               D            Cadd9         G    C
  My first wife told me, you need to get a life
                                     G    C
My third wife told me to get another wife
                           G                      C             G
I brought a bottle and the van's parked right out-side the door
           D                   Cadd9           G
So come on out with me, if you wanna be number four


CHORUS
C                       G
  Sometimes I feel like shit
                             D
Sometimes that ain't half of it
     C                     G               C     G
Some-times I'm so high I'm scared to go to sleep
              D              Cadd9     G    Cadd9  G
Sometimes I'm lower than the company I keep


G  Cadd9  G  Cadd9

G            D                Cadd9           G    C
  Ain't held down a job since nineteen-eighty-four
                                G      C
I get by holding up convenience stores
                G                 C    G
And I get by on liquor, guns, and luck
        D                     Cadd9             G
But I'm scared to death which one might run out first


[REPEAT CHORUS]


G  Cadd9  G

G          D             Cadd9           G     C
  I see my past in every-thing that I de-spise
                                               G    C
I've seen my future and I'm scared to close my eyes
                        G         C     G
Is that my ghost that I see in my fears
              D           Cadd9     G
Or just my re-flection in my Mama's tears


[REPEAT CHORUS]


G               D              Cadd9     G    C
  Sometimes I'm lower than the company I keep
           D        Cadd9   G    Cadd9  G
I pray the Lord, my soul to keep
