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.

Then I saw the surprise,
And the fear in his eyes,
When I took his glass of champange,

and I toasted you,
Said honey we may be through,
But you'll never hear me complain,

(Chorus)
'Cause I got friends in low places,
Where the Whiskey drowns,
And the Beer chases my blues away,
And I'll be okay,
Ahhhh, I'm not big on the social graces,
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis,
Oh I got friends,
In low places.

Well I guess I was wrong I just don't belong
but then, I've been there before, everything is 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 x 2

Well I guess I was wrong I just don't belong
but then I've been there before, everything is 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 wait 'til I finish this glass
Then, sweet little lady I'll head back to the bar (haha) and you can kiss my ass

Chorus
