Down In The Boondocks Lyrics

Ev'ry night I watch the lights from the house upon the
I love a little girl who lives up there and I guess I
always will
But I don't dare knock upon her door, 'cause her daddy is
my boss man
So I got to try to be content, to see her whenever I can


( Down in the boondocks, down in the boondocks
People put me down, 'cause that's the side of town I was
born in
I love her, she loves me, but I don't fit in her society
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks )

One fine day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
I'll hold my head up like a king and I never will look
Until that day I'll work and slave, and I'll save every
But tonight she'll have to steal away to see me one more
