“WE HAVE MANY FRIENDS THAT REMAIN IN RELIGIOUS CONFUSION OR SPIRiTUAL BABYLON, THEY ARE IN LOW PLACES. WE ALSO HAVE THOSE WHO HAVE ASCENDED INTO SPIRITUAL ZION “THE HEIGHTS OF TRUE WORSHIP AND LIBERTY”, THEY ARE IN HIGH PLACES. THIS REWRITE IS IN REFERENCE TO THE DESTRUCTION OF FALLEN BABYLON BY THOSE WHO WILL DARE GO INTO THE SYSTEM OF CONFUSION AND BRING TRUTH THAT LIBERATES MEN FROM DEAD WORKS OF RELIGION .”
FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES ( re-write )
1. Blame it all on my roots, I showed up in truth,
and ruined your religious affair.
The first one to know, the first one to show,
I was the last one you thought you’d see there.
2. And I saw the surprise and the fear and the lies
when I took away all their shame.
I praised and, said babylon, “you are now through,
and the church shall forever reign.”
‘Cause I got friends in low places,
where the spirit moves and the word chases
their blues away, and they will be okay.
And I’m not big on religious faces, think I’ll slip on down to the oasis,
Am -D G G – Am – D – G
oh, I’ve got friends in low places.
3. Well I got a new song, I just don’t belong,
but then, I’ve been here before.
Everything’s all right, I’ll just stay in the light,
and I’ll show them all to the door.
G Dm Am C
4. Hey I didn’t mean to stand up and sing, but she just has an hour and then
She will be in hell and her smoke shall forever ascend.
