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

    Well, every night I watch the lights from the house up on the hill
    I love a girl who lives up there and I guess I always will
    I don't dare knock on her door, her daddy is my boss man
    I wait to try to be content just to see her wherever I can

    Down in the boondocks

    One fine day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
    Hold my head up like a king and never never never go 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

    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
