Down In The Boondocks Lyrics

Artist: Del Reeves
Album: The Best

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 the boy from down in the boondocks

Well every night I watch the lights from the house up on the hill
I love a girl who lives up there and I guess I always will
I don't dare knock on her door her daddy is my boss man
I wait to try to be content just to see her wherever I can

Down in the boondocks...
[ guitar - steel ]
One find day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
Hold my head up like a king and never never never go back
Until that day 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...
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
