Friends in Low Places

Garth Brooks

              C
Blame it all on my roots
    c#dim7
I showed up in boots  
     Dm                         G
And ruined your black tie affair 

The last one to know 

The last one to show 
         C
I was the last one 

You thought you'd see there 
F/G      C
And I saw the surprise 
          C#Dim7
And the fear in his eyes 
            Dm                   Fm
When I took his glass of champagne 
     G
And I toasted you 
        
Said, honey, we may be through 

But you'll never hear me complain 

          C
'Cause I've got friends in low places 

Where the whiskey drowns 
                          Dm
And the beer chases my blues away 
             G
And I'll be okay 
  C      
I'm not big on social graces 

Think I'll slip on down to the oasis 
 Dm                G               C
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 

chorus


3rd Verse: 
I guess I was wrong 
I just don't belong 
But then, I've been there before 
And everything is alright 
I'll just say goodnight 
And I'll show myself to the door 
I didn't mean to cause a big scene 
Just wait 'til I finish this glass 
Then sweet little lady 
I'll head back to the bar 
And you can kiss my ass
