Garth Brooks performs "Friends In Low Places"

"Friends in Low Places" is a song performed by American country artist Garth Brooks. It was released on August 6, 1990 as the lead single from his album No Fences. The song spent four weeks at number one on the Hot Country Songs, and won both the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association awards for 1990 Single of the Year.

 

"Friends in Low Places" was written in 1989 by songwriters Dewayne Blackwell and Earl Bud Lee. The two songwriters had given the song to Brooks to record as a demo soon before the release of his self-titled first album, when he was a relatively unknown singer. Enamored with the song, Brooks recorded the official version the next year.

Garth Brooks - Friends In Low Places Lyrics

 

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

'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

Well, I guess I was wrong 

I just don't belong 

But then, I've been there before 

Everything's all right 

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

'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

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

Cause I got friends in low places

Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away

And I'll be okay.

Well, I'm not big on social graces

Think I'll slip on down to the oasis

Oh, I got friends in low places
