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, goin'
Chorus:
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
But I need money, honey, give me money, honey
Money, honey, (I need enough) money, honey
I'll take it to the bank, I'll take it all down, just say it to me, oh man
chorus
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
