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
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
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
