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
