Down In The Boondocks chords
Joe South (also performed by Billy Joe Royal) *

A                      D
Down in the boondocks, down in the boondocks
E                         D                             A
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
A
I love her, she loves me
    D
But I don't fit in her society
E                      D                    A
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks

A                                       D               A
Every night I watch the light from that house up on the hill
A                  D                  A              F#m
I love that little girl inside, and I guess I always will

    D                  E
But I don't dare knock on her door 'cause
    D                E
Her daddy is my boss man
    D                E                   D                  E
For now I'll have to be content, just to see her whenever I can

A                      D
Down in the boondocks, down in the boondocks
E                         D                             A
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in

I love her, she loves me
    D
But I don't fit in her society
E                      D                    A
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks

A                               D                  A
One fine day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
                     D                 A               F#m
I'll hold my head up like a king and I never will look back

     D                     E
But 'til that morning I'll work and slave
    D               E
And I'll save every dime
      D                    E
But tonight she'll have to steal away
   D                    E
To see me just one more time

A                      D
Down in the boondocks, down in the boondocks
E                         D                             A
People put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in

I love her, she loves me
    D
But I don't fit in her society

E                      D                    A
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks
E                      D                    A
Lord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks
