Down in the boondocks down in the boondocks
People lookin' 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 lights from the house up on the hill
I love a boy who lives up there and I guess I always will
But I don't dare go near his door cause jis folks won't let me in
So I have to try to be content just to see him wherever I can
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 never will look back
Until that day I'll save my love for a boy I'll soon call mine
But tonight he'll have to steal away to see me one more time
Down in the boondocks...
Lord have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks
