‘Cultured Country’ with Jim & Lisa – This Week: ‘Friends In Low Places’
We celebrated a Throw-back Thursday this morning with some old-school Garth... Cultured Country this week featured song lyrics from back in 1990 when Garth Brooks shot into the stratosphere with his monster hit "Friends in Low Places". So, here we go again with Lisa's old man, Sir John our resident Britt-neck, and this week's Cultured Country.
Just hit the play button below and away we go...
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
Well, I'll be as high
As that ivory tower
That you're livin' in'Cause I've got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I'll be okay
I'm not big on social graces
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I've got friends in low places
"Cultured Country," listen for it Thursday mornings at 7:45 with Jim & Lisa, "The Wakeup Crew," on Kicker 102.5.
Here's the way it sounds when Garth sings it...
How It Works: The premise is simple, country music lovers like us are generally thought of as un-cultured, so to fight this ridiculous notion and bring what we consider a little more refinement to our show, we thought having someone from jolly old England read some country music lyrics, out loud, on the radio might raise the culture bar a notch or two. Since we don't have any access to the Royals and the only Brit we know in the immediate area just happens to be Lisa's husband John, that's the way we went.
