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'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

'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 
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 
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 
I've got friends in low places Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I'll be okay.
