Yeah, 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 'Cause 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 we'll be okay 'Cause I'm not big on social graces Think I'll slip on down to the oasis Oh, I've got friends in low places Yeah, I guess I was wrong ​I just don't belong But then, I've been there before. Everything's alright, I'll just say goodnight And I'll show myself to the door. No, I didn't mean to cause a big scene Just wait til' I finish this glass Then sweet little lady, I'll be back to the bar You can kiss my ass! 'Cause I've got friends in low places Where the whiskey drowns And the beer chases my blues away And we'll be okay 'Cause I'm not big on social graces Think I'll slip on down to the oasis Oh, I've got friends in low places We got friends in low places
