Friends in Low Places by Garth Brooks


Technically, it wasn't Garth Brooks version of Friends in Low Places, it was a cover band because Garth is too "Good" to have his music on Spotify. He isn't the only one, there are a few others, even one chick who took hers off after having them all on there. I use cover bands when they are decent and in one artists case, I just have none of his songs but I like a ton of them. I'm guessing he doesn't allow covers either because I couldn't find any. The Beatles used to be one of those artists but they allow it now, as you can tell.

I do like Garth's music, I used to have his Double Live album and loved it. It was great on long trips when I could listen to both CD's all together.



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"

[Chorus]
'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

[Verse 2]
Well, 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
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

[Chorus]
'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

[Chorus:Garth Brooks + Crowd][x2]
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

[Verse 3]
I guess I was wrong
I just don't belong
But then, I've been there before
And everything is alright
I'll just say goodnight
And I'll show myself to the door
I didn't mean to cause a big scene
Just wait 'til I finish this glass
Then sweet little lady
I'll head back to the bar
And you can kiss my ass

[Chorus]
'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
