Ev'ry night I watch the lights from the house upon the hill
But I don't dare knock upon her door, 'cause her daddy is my boss man
People put me down, 'cause that's the side of town I was born in
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
Money, honey, (I need enough) money, honey
I'll hold my head up like a king and I never will look back
But tonight she'll have to steal away to see me one more time, goin'
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
Have mercy baby, a little mercy, hang around all day, take me
