                DOWN IN THE BOONDOCKS
                              (Joe South)

(also from Joe South's Greatest Hits    Capitol 450    July 1970)


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
Every night I watch the light from that house up on the hill
                   D                 Db             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

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

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

Joe South's version is great.  Billy Joe Royal's was OK.  BJR's re-recorded
version is really awful.
