Earl Bud Lee and Dewayne Blackwell wrote the song in 1989, and they gave a demo to Garth Brooks, that those moments he released his first album, Garth Brooks (Capitol 1989), Garth fell in love with the song, which officially recorded the following year, for your second job.

According to Earl Bud Lee, the idea for the song was born when he and some of his fellow songwriters met for lunch one day at Tavern on the Row, a popular restaurant in Nashville. When the check arrived, Lee realized he had forgotten his money. They asked her how she was going to pay for the food and she replied: “Do not worry, I have friends in low places, I know the cook”. Lee and his composition partner, Dewayne Blackwell, recognized immediately. that the line “friends in low places” had the potential to write a song. A few months later, Lee and Blackwell were at a party, celebrating a recent success number one from another composer. They began to talk about the idea of “friends in low places” and “at that very moment, everything began to unite in a song”. They wrote the song on paper napkins. When composers polished “Friends in Low Places,” they contacted Garth Brooks to see if he recorded a demo for them.

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
