Note: Thanks to IFlyAnF14@aol.com for the rare third verse to 
this song. IFlyAnF14@aol.com also said he had heard it on the
radio and that Garth sang it in Central Park the summer of 1997.
This song is done in the key of A.  Too low for me so I put it
in the key of E.

FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES    Garth Brooks
Intro chords   E E7 A B

E                        E7
Blame it all on roots I showed up in boots 
      F#m                   A
and ruined your black tie affair
B                         B7 
The last one to know the last one to show 
           A 
I was the last one you thought youíd see there
E                               E7
And I saw the surprise and the fear in his eyes
       F#m                  Am  
When I took his glass of champagne
         B                                
And I toasted you Said, honey we may be through

But youíll never hear me complain

CHORUS:
         E   
ĎCause Iíve got friends in low places 

Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases
     B7    A   B7       A       B 
my blues away     and Iíll be okay
         E  
Iím not big on social graces 

Think Iíll slip on down to the Oasis 
F#m                     B7    E 
So Iíve got friends in low places.


E                           E7 
Well I guess I was wrong I just donít belong
F#m                        A
But then Iíve been there before
B                            E7 
Everythingís all right Iíll just say goodnight
          E
And Iíll show myself to the door
                       E7     
Hey I didnít mean to cause a big scene
      F#m                 Am
Just give me an hour and then
           B   
Well, Iíll be as high as that ivory tower that youíre living in

chorus,
E                       E7 
I guess I was wrong  I just donít belong
F#m                         A
But then, Iíve been there before
      B                           E7 
And everything is all right Iíll just say goodnight
           E 
And Iíll show myself to the door
E                       E7
Hey, I didnít mean to cause a big scene
      F#m                      Am
Just wait Ďtil I finish this glass
       B   
Then sweet little lady Iíll head back to the bar

And you can kiss my ass
