FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES (Earl Bud Lee / Dewayne Blackman) Garth Brooks - 1990 Mark Chessnut - 1990 Blame it all on my roots, I showed up in boots And ruined your black tie affair The last one to know, the last one to show I was the last one you thought you'd see there And I saw the surprise and the fear in his eyes When I took his glass of champagne And I toasted you, said "Honey, we may be through But you'll never hear me complain" 'Cause I got friends in low places where the whiskey drowns And the beer chases my blues away, and I'll be okay Now, I'm not big on social graces, think I'll slip on down to the Oasis Oh, I've got friends in low places Well, I guess I was wrong, I just don't belong But then, I've been there before Everything's all right, I'll just say goodnight And I'll show myself to the door Hey, I didn't mean to cause a big scene Just give me an hour and then Well I'll be as high as that ivory tower That you're livin' in 'Cause I got friends in low places where the whiskey drowns And the beer chases my blues away, and I'll be okay Now, I'm not big on social graces, think I'll slip on down to the Oasis Oh, I've got friends in low places I got friends in low places where the whiskey drowns And the beer chases my blues away, and I'll be okay Now, I'm not big on social graces, think I'll slip on down to the Oasis Oh, I've got friends in low places I got friends in low places where the whiskey drowns And the beer chases my blues away and I'll be okay I'm not big on social graces, think I'll slip on down to the Oasis Oh, I've got friends in low places I got friends in low places where the whiskey drowns And the beer chases my blues away .......... FADE ** In some live shows, Garth Brooks sang the following extra verse: Hey, I didn't mean to cause a big scene Just wait till I finish this glass Then, sweet little lady, I'll head back to the bar And you can kiss my ass!
