[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
