FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES

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 TEAR IN HIS EYES
WHEN I TOOK HIS GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE
AND I TOASTED YOU,SAIDHONEY WE MAY BE THRU
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 AWAYAND 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 ALLRIGHT , 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 LIVING IN.

CHORUS
