Down In The Boondocks Lyrics

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 and she loves me but I don't fit in her society
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks

Now, every night I watch the lights from the house upon the hill
Well, I love a little girl who lives up there and I guess I always will
But I don't dare knock on her door 'cause her daddy is my boss man
So I'll just have to be content and see her whenever I can

Take a trip on down in the boondocks
Take a ride on down in the boondocks
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
See, I love her and she loves me but I don't fit her society
Lord, have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks

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

Get together, darling, down in the boondocks
Making love, darling, down in the boondocks
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
I love her and she loves me but I don't fit her society
Lord, have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks


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