Intro: A  E  B  E   

Verse:
         A
Blame it all on my roots
     E
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
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 -same as first-:
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:
       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

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
