Down In The Boondocks
Recorded by Billy Joe Royal
Written by Joe South

G C
Down in the boondocks down in the boondocks
D7 C G
People put me down cause that's the side of town I was born in
C
I love her she loves me but I don't fit in her society
D7 C G
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks

C G
Every night I watch the light from that house up on the hill
C B7 Em
I love a little girl that lives up there and I guess I always will
C D7 C D7
But I don't dare knock on her door cause her daddy is my boss man
C D7 C D7
So I'll just have to be content to see her whenever I can

Repeat #1

G C G
One fine day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
C B7 Em
I'll hold my head up like a king and I never never will look back
C D7
Until that morning I'll work and slave
C D7 C D7
And I'll save every dime but tonight she'll have to steal away
C D7
To see me one more time

Repeat #1

D7 C G
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
D7 C G
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
