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 and she loves me 
But I don't fit in her society 
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks 

Now, every night I watch the lights from the house upon the hill 
Well, 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 and see her whenever I can 

Take a trip on down in the boondocks, 
Take a ride on down in the boondocks 
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in 
See, I love her and she loves me 
But I don't fit her society 
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks 

One fine day I'll find a way and move from this old shack 
Well, I'll hold my head up like a king and I'll never, never will look back 
'Til 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 

Get together, darling, down in the boondocks 
Making love, darling, down in the boondocks 
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in 
I love her and she loves me 
But I don't fit her society 
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks 
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks
