Friends in Low Places [The Long Version]
by Garth Brooks



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

(chorus)
'Cause I've 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.

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 only on live shows)
I guess I was wrong,
I just don't belong,
But then, I've been there before,
Everythings alright,
I'll just ssay goodnight
and I'll show myself to the door
Hey, I didn't mean
to cause a big scene,
Just let me finish this glass
Then I'll head back to the bar
and Little Lady
You can kiss my a**

Chorus
