Down In The Boondocks - Joe South

    Ev'ry night I watch the lights from the house upon the hill
    I love a little girl who lives up there and I guess I always will
    But I don't dare knock upon her door, 'cause her daddy is my boss man
    So I got to try to be content, to see her whenever I can


    ( 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, but I don't fit in her society
    Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks )

    One fine day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
    I'll hold my head up like a king and I never will look back
    Until that day I'll work and slave, and I'll save every dime
    But tonight she'll have to steal away to see me one more time,

    (chorus repeats 2x)
