Down In The Boondocks chords
Joe South (also performed by Billy Joe Royal) *
[A]Down in the boondocks, [D]down in the boondocks
[E]People put me down 'cause [D]that's the side of town I was [A]born in
[A]I love her, she loves me
But [D]I don't fit in her society
[E]Lord have mercy, I'm a [D]boy from down in the [A]boondocks
[A]Every night I watch the light from that [D]house up on the [A]hill
[A]I love that little [D]girl inside, and I [A]guess I always [F#m]will
But [D]I don't dare knock [E]on her door 'cause
Her [D]daddy is my boss [E]man
For [D]now I'll have to [E]be content, just to [D]see her whenever I [E]can
[A]Down in the boondocks, [D]down in the boondocks
[E]People put me down 'cause [D]that's the side of town I was [A]born in
I love her, she loves me
But [D]I don't fit in her society
[E]Lord have mercy, I'm a [D]boy from down in the [A]boondocks
[A]One fine day I'll find a way to [D]move from this old [A]shack
I'll hold my head up [D]like a king and I [A]never will look [F#m]back
But '[D]til that morning I'll [E]work and slave
And [D]I'll save every [E]dime
But to[D]night she'll have to [E]steal away
To [D]see me just one more [E]time
[A]Down in the boondocks, [D]down in the boondocks
[E]People put me down 'cause [D]that's the side of town I was [A]born in
I love her, she loves me
But [D]I don't fit in her society
[E]Lord have mercy, I'm a [D]boy from down in the [A]boondocks
[E]Lord have mercy, I'm a [D]boy from down in the [A]boondocks
