Kenny Loggins Down In The Boondocks Lyrics

Last updated:

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 and she loves me
But I don't fit her society
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks

Every night I will watch the light from the house upon the hill
I love a little girl that lives up there, I guess I always will
But I don't dare knock on her door
Her daddy is my boss man
So I'll just have to be content
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 and she loves me
But I don't fit her society
Lord have mercy, on a boy from down in the boondocks (harmony)

Down in the boondocks, 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 - I never, never will look back
Until that morning I'll work and slave
And I'll save every dime
But tonight she'll have to steal away
To see me 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 and she loves me
But I don't fit her society
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
