Down In The Boondocks-lyr

Freddy Weller

Subject: Down In The Boondocks by Freddy Weller
Ê 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, butÊI don't fit in her society Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks Lord have mercyÊon the boy from down in the boondocks. Ê Ev'ry 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 But I don't dare
knock on her door 'Cause her daddy is my boss man So I have to try to be content Just to see her whenever I can. (Repest chorus)
One fine day I'll find a way to move from this old shack I'll hold my head up like a king AndÊnever, never will look back Until that morning I'll work and slave And I'll save ev'ry dime But tonight she'll have to steal away To see me one more time. (Repeat chorous) Ê This song sent in by Laura Keating
