Lyrics

[CHORUS] 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 the boy From down in the boondocks

Every night I watch the light From the house up on the hill I love a little girl that 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 To see her whenever I can [repeat CHORUS] Down in the boondocks 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, never will look back Until 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 [repeat CHORUS] Lord, have mercy on the boy From down in the boondocks Lord, have mercy on the boy From down in the boondocks
