"The Company You Keep " as written by and Simpson....
you shall be known by the company you keep
what you sow is what you reap
you make your bed that's where you'll sleep
you shall be known by the company you keep

now we've been drinking way too much
maybe you just lost your touch
red stripe sunset more heartbreak
some of your friends are hard to take
some of your friends are hard to take

friends may come and friends may go
this is one thing that i know
this is one thing that i know

you shall be known by the company you keep
and what you sow is what you reap
you make your bed that's where you'll sleep
you shall be known by the company you keep

Gentleman Jim is gone with the wind
pukin' in the hill above Negril
up where Beverly died in her sleep with her white Frenchman in her bed
how did that Frenchman sleep so deep?
you know what all the people said?
you know what all the people said?

you shall be known by the company you keep
and what you sow is what you reap
you make your bed that's where you'll sleep
you shall be known by the company you keep

the little boys found him back in the junkyard
he's over in the driveway sleepin' in the parked car
they tied his shoes together in a knot
he got up later and he fell down flat
you know little boys laugh at a thing like that
you know little boys laugh at things like that

Lord Jim howlin' at the moon
trades his gold ring for a room
i can't stay, my money's gone
i think i might have stayed too long
i think i might have stayed too long
i think i might have stayed too long
i think i might have stayed too long

you shall be known by the company you keep
what you sow is what you reap
you make your bed that's where you'll sleep
you shall be known by the company you keep
