'Friends in Low Places'  by Garth Brooks

These are the words and chords to 'Friends in Low Places'
as best I can remember.  If I gestimated wrong, it was not
intentional. :)

INTRO:
                                                               {hammer
    A               e dim           b                    E        on}
|---------------|------------0--|-----------------2--|------------2^4--|
|------------2--|---------2-----|------------3-------|---------5-------|
|---------2-----|------3--------|---------4----------|------4----------|
|------2--------|---------------|------4-------------|---2-------------|
|---0-----------|---1-----------|---2----------------|-----------------|
|---------------|---------------|--------------------|-----------------|

VERSE:

         A
Blame it all on my roots
     e dim
I showed up in boots
     b
And ruined your black tie affair
     E
The last one to know, the last one to show
          A
I was the last one you thought you'd see there

      A
And I saw the surprise
        e dim
And the fear in his eyes
        b
When I took his glass of champagne
E
I toasted you said honey we may be through

But you'll never hear me complain

CHORUS:
       A
'Cause I got friends in low places

Where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases
   b
My blues away
         E
And I'll be okay

A
I'm not big on social graces

I think I'll step on out to the oasis
       b            E
'Cause I've got friends in low places

VERSE:

Well I guess I was wrong
I just don't belong
But hey, I've been there before
Everything's all right, I'll just say goodnight
& 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

CHORUS

Hey there great tab. Looks pretty good, just a few small changes if you want Garths actual version of playing.

1. The chords in your intro should be A, A#dim7, Bm7, and E...the 1st, 3rd, and 4th chords in your intro and tabbed correctly...just the name of the "b" should be "Bm7."

An A#dim7 is formed like this (sorry if you're new to guitar it may be hard for you. THIS CHORD IS NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE FRETBOARD.
E--X
B--5
G--6
D--5
A--X
E--6
So change your intro to
E-------------------------------------5----------2h4--
B---------------------5----------3-------------5------
G--------2----------6----------2----2--------4--------
D------2----------5----------4-------------2----------
A----2---------------------2--------------------------
E--0-----------6--------------------------------------

The intro is roughly played over and over in the song until you get to "cham-pagne"

When you get to the next part it looks like this:
I TOASTED YOU,_ SAID HON-EY, WE MAY BE THROUGH BUT YOU'LL NEVER HEAR MECOMPLAIN
E----------------------------------------------------------------
B--------9------9-------9--------9-------9-------9---------------
G------9------9-------9--------9-------9-------9-----------------
D----9------9-------9--------9-------9-------9-------------------
A--7--------------7--------7-------7-------7---------------------
E---------------------------------------------------0-0-2-2-4-4--

NICE TAB MAN, ANYONE NEEDS ANYTHING I'LL BE IN THE BATHROOM, MAIL ME

I found a much easier way to do the intro. It's a lot less stretching with your fingers - give this one a shot and let me know what you think.
