Down In The Boondocks
 
 

Every night I watch the lights from the house upon the hill
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

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 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 back
Until that day 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

Chorus repeats 2x:

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

Lyrics by Joe South.
Recorded by Billy Joe Royal; Kenny Loggins; Billy Joel.
