Martin L. GoreDown In The Boondocks

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 a boy from down in the boondocks Ev'ry night I watch the light From the house upon the hill I love a little girl who 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 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 a boy from down in the boondocks 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 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 a boy from down in the boondocks Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
