This is how I play it and Iím almost 100% positive this the right key
and chords that Garth uses.
Donít be intimidated by the A#dim7, it is easy to play, look
At the chart on the bottom. 



Garth Brooks: Friends in Low Places



Intro (pick): A A#dim7 Bm E
 

1st Verse:                      
 A                   A#dim7       
Blame it all on my roots, I showed up in boots
    Bm
And ruined your black tie affair
    E                      E7
The last one to know, the last one to show
           A
I was the last one you thought you'd see there
       A                       A#dim7
And I saw the surprise and the fear in his eyes
        Bm                    Dm
When I took his glass of champagne
E                         E7
I toasted you, said honey we may be through
    E
But you'll never hear me complain
 
 
Chorus:               
  A       
Cuz I got friends in low places
           A                                    Bm
Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away
         E
And I'll be OK
     A
Now I'm not big on social graces
                                A7
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
    Bm              E         A
So I've got friends in low places
 


Instrumental:  A  Bm  E  A
 


2nd Verse:
  A                  A#dim7
Well I guess I was wrong, I just don't belong
     Bm
Then I've been there before
      E                      E7
Everything's all right, I'll just say goodnight
          A
And I'll show myself to the door
    A                A#dim7
Hey I didn't mean to cause a big scene
      Bm                  Dm
Just give me an hour and then
E                        E7
I'll be as high as that ivory tower
     E
That you're livin' in
 

Chorus:    
  A       
Cuz I got friends in low places
           A                                    Bm
Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away
         E
And I'll be OK
     A
Now I'm not big on social graces
                                A7
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
    Bm              E         A
So I've got friends in low places

 
Mysterious 3rd Verse:

A                  A#dim7
Well I guess I was wrong, I just don't belong
     Bm
Then I've been there before
      E                      E7
Everything's all right, I'll just say goodnight
          A
And I'll show myself to the door
    A                A#dim7
Hey I didn't mean to cause a big scene
      Bm                  Dm
Just wait Ďtil I finish this glass
      E                          E7           
Then sweet little lady Iíll head back to the bar
    E  
And you can kiss my ass



Chorus:               
  A       
Cuz I got friends in low places
           A                                    Bm
Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away
         E
And I'll be OK
     A
Now I'm not big on social graces
                                A7
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
    Bm              E         A
So I've got friends in low places

This is the way I learned it. I'm no music
theorist, but I think you got the right
chords but they are located in a different
area of the fret board. For example, in the
intro play the A#dim7 like this;

A#dim7 X1X020

It's the same fingering as a A7/B#, and they
may be the same chord with a different name.
Also, the E7 is on the high side of the fret
board;

E7 XX2434

In the intro, what makes it distinctive is
how it's played, you pick out on 1 note on
the Bm7, & hammer on E7. Here's the intro,
I'll put an "H" on the note to be hammered
on to the previous chord and a "P" to pick.

A X0333X
A#dim7 X2X020
Bm7 X24235
P2
E7 XX2432
H4
Hope that's not too confusing. It sounds
really close to how Garth plays it.

-TCtrumpeter08 | 8/28/2005

-joshward_16 | 10/7/2005
the chords for the verses are fine played as is. the intro is a bit different:

e--------------------5--------0
B----2-----5------3----------0
G---2-----6-----2---------1-1
