DOWN IN THE BOONDOCKS (Joe South) Billy Joe Royal 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 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 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 CHORUS Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
