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 you'd 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 you'll never hear me complain

CHORUS:
         E   
'Cause I've got friends in low places 

Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases
     B7    A   B7       A       B 
my blues away     and I'll be okay
         E  
I'm not big on social graces 

Think I'll slip on down to the Oasis 
F#m                     B7    E 
So I've got friends in low places.


E                           E7 
Well I guess I was wrong I just don't belong
F#m                        A
But then I've been there before
B                            E7 
Everything's all right I'll just say goodnight
          E
And I'll show myself to the door
                       E7     
Hey I didn't mean to cause a big scene
      F#m                 Am
Just give me an hour and then
           B   
Well, I'll be as high as that ivory tower that you're living in

chorus,
E                       E7 
I guess I was wrong  I just don't belong
F#m                         A
But then, I've been there before
      B                           E7 
And everything is all right I'll just say goodnight
           E 
And I'll show myself to the door
E                       E7
Hey, I didn't mean to cause a big scene
      F#m                      Am
Just wait 'til I finish this glass
       B   
Then sweet little lady I'll head back to the bar

And you can kiss my ass
