My wife had an inspiration to write a parody of "Friends in Low Places" by Garth Brooks. In the end, I helped her finish it off lyrically and then had the demo made as a gift for Sweetest Day. I hope you all enjoy it.

VERSE
Blame it all on my prayer, I showed up, up there, and ruined your plan of despair
I felt your torment, the last to repent, I was the last one to say the Lord's Prayer
And I saw the surprise, and the tear in your eyes when I walked into God's domain
I glanced back at you, said Satan, we're through and I'll never be the same

CHORUS
'Cuz I've got friends in high places where the angels sing and the love chases
my demons away and I'll just go pray
Hey I don't miss my old world places, think I'll rise on up for His warm embraces
Oh, I've got friends in high places

VERSE
Well I guess you were wrong I really do belong but then, you've been wrong before
And everything's all right I'm dressed in bright white and you've lost this spiritual war
Hey I didn't foresee, heaven with caffeine, as I'm having tea with my Queen
And I'm just as high as that mountain of Zion, my Lord reigns supreme

CHORUS
'Cuz I've got friends in high places where the angels sing and the love chases
my demons away and I'll just go pray
Hey I don't miss my old world places, think I'll rise on up for His warm embraces
Oh, I've got friends in high places

CHORUS
'Ohhhh I've got friends in high places where the angels sing and the love chases
my demons away and I'll just go pray
Hey I don't miss my old world places, think I'll rise on up for His warm embraces
Oh, I've got friends in high places

TAG
Ohhhh, I've got friends in high places... fade out

Steady-eddie / Kevin,
Thank you both for your kind words. The change-up from the original to a female voice was something I came up with at the last minute. I think it makes the line about having tea a little more believable.

I love it! Christian version of an old standard.

The singer has some pipes. If that is your wife, it must be nice having such a talented singer under the roof with you to help on your songs.

Solid production, too.

Peace,
TC

Hi TC,
No, not my wife, her name is Christie and she sings with Bottle Rockit Productions who completed the demo for me. I agree, she is very good indeed.
Blessings to you and yours,
Skip
