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

A DDown in the boondocks, down in the boondocks
E D APeople put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
AI love her, she loves me
DBut I don't fit in her society
E D ALord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks
A D AEvery night I watch the light from that house up on the hill
A D A F#mI love that little girl inside, and I guess I always will
D EBut I don't dare knock on her door 'cause
D EHer daddy is my boss man
D E D EFor now I'll have to be content, just to see her whenever I can
A DDown in the boondocks, down in the boondocks
E D APeople put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
I love her, she loves me
DBut I don't fit in her society
E D ALord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks
A D AOne fine day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
D A F#mI'll hold my head up like a king and I never will look back
D EBut 'til that morning I'll work and slave
D EAnd I'll save every dime
D EBut tonight she'll have to steal away
D ETo see me just one more time
A DDown in the boondocks, down in the boondocks
E D APeople put me down 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
I love her, she loves me
DBut I don't fit in her society
E D ALord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks
E D ALord have mercy, I'm a boy from down in the boondocks
