THE COMPANY I KEEP

Intro:
Cadd9, G

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


G            D                 Cadd9         G
My first wife told me, you need to get a life
Cadd9                                G
My third wife told me to get another wife
Cadd9                             G                Cadd9
I brought a bottle and the van's parked right outside the door
G            D                 Cadd9         G
So come on darling, if you want to be number 4


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


G           D                Cadd9   G
Ain't held down no job since 1984
Cadd9                          G
I get by holding up convenience stores
Cadd9           G             Cadd9
I get by on liquor, guns and luck
G            D                 Cadd9         G
But I'm scared to death which one might run out first

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


G            D             Cadd9     G
I seen my past in everything that I despise
Cadd9                                    G
I've seen my future and I'm scared to close my eyes
Cadd9               G           Cadd9
Is that my ghost that I see in my fears
Cadd9      D             G         Cadd9
Or just my reflection in my Mama's tears

Cadd9                 G
Sometimes I feel like shit
Cadd9                      D
Sometimes it ain't half of it
Cadd9                     G               Cadd9
Sometimes I'm so high I'm scared to go to sleep
G             D              Cadd9     G
Sometimes I'm lower than the company I keep
G             D              Cadd9     G
Sometimes I'm lower than the company I keep
Cadd9                        G
I pray the Lord, my soul to keep

Good job, love this song. It's hard to have an ear for this one. They do some crazy tunings

Agree great job. Chords are spot on. With most all Patterson Hold songs he’s tuned down a whole step. See Heathens, Tornados, etc. But in this case, I believe it’s a half step down. My ear is not the best so tune down a half and whole step and go with what you’re hearing.
