Other songs by Garth Brooks performed by Oracle
Blame it 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
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 got friends in low places
Where the whisky 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 got friends...in low places.
Well I guess I was wrong, I just don't belong,
But then I've been there before.
Everythings 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!
(Alternate last verse as performed by Garth live)
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
I didn't mean to cause a big scene,
Just wait 'till I finish this glass
Then sweet little baby I'll go back to the bar
And you can kiss my ass!
