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 show, the last one to know
The last one you thought youíd see there
I saw the surprise, and the fear in his eyes
When I took his glass of champagne
Then I toasted you, said honey we may be through
But youíll never hear me complain

Cause Iíve got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns and there beer chases
My blues away and Iíll be OK
Hey, Iím not big on social graces
Think Iíll slip on down to the Oasis
Oh Iíve got friends in low places

I guess I was wrong. I just donít belong
But then Iíve been there before
Everythingís all right, Iíll just say goodnight
And Iíll show myself to the door
Hey, I didnít mean to cause a big scene
But give me an hour and then
Iíll be as high as this ivory tower
That youíre liviní in

Cause Iíve got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns and there beer chases
My blues away and Iíll be OK
Hey, Iím not big on social graces
Think Iíll slip on down to the Oasis
Oh Iíve got friends in low places
