    Lyrics

    (Joe South)

    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 him, he loves me but I don't fit in his society
    Lord, have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks.

    Every night I watch the light from the house up on the hill
    I love a little boy who lives up there and I guess I always will
    But I don't dare knock on his door 'cause his folks won't let me in
    So I'll just have to be content to see him 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 him, he loves me but I don't fit in his society
    Lord, have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks.

    One find day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
    I'll hold my head up like a queen and I never ever will look back
    But till that morning when we can walk together hand in hand
    But I'll just have to be content to see him wherever 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 him, he loves me but I don't fit in his society
    Lord, have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks.

    Lord have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks...
