Garth Brooks
"Friends In Low Places" 

This is just another of the 500 different ways to play the song. I know these aren't 
the chords that Garth uses, but they work if you want to sing along and 
strum before the solo that I put with this, and you don't have 
to remove the capo. Enjoy.

Capo 2 for chords and solo

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
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 whiskey drowns and the beer chases my bl-ues away
And I'll be okay
Now I'm not big on social graces
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
   Am              D           G             
So I've got friends in low pla-ces


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
I'll be as high as that ivory tower

That you're livin' in


Repeat chorus as many times as desired

G- 320003
D- x00323
Am- 002210


This is the intro and solo to the song. Again, the solo probably 
isn't what is really played, but it works great for me.

h= Hammer-on
s= slide
po= pull off

The intro, chords, and solo are all great
-Vanny | 7/4/2004
very good it was nice clean and easy i will be looking foward to see some more of your tabs

Some of Garths chosen chords are a pain to play. This chord selection you picked is good for me and you did some thoughtful work here. Can't help complimenting the site too. Country music is my bag, baby! Ed Z

this is good but where it goes "showed up in boots" there is a chord thats missing in between the G and Am

-blezingercamero | 2/8/2006
Try adding the second chord of the intro, ie 4 x343x which I would call a Bb diminished between the G and the Am. You can add it at the same spot in each verse, You can strum it or pick it arpeggio, like the opening intro, whichever you prefer..
-mmguitarman | 9/2/2011
Missing a chord: On "Showed up in boots" you need a Edim (or Ddim if it's capo 2).
-willyd_5 | 5/2/2013
An E major chord works great for inbetween G and Am. Only in the verses
-jbuck2013 | 4/22/2014
