Songtekst

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 her society
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks

Every night I watch the light of 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

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 her society
Lord have mercy on the 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, 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

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 her society
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks

Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
