(Joe South)

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 him, he loves me but I don't fit in his society
Lord, have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks.

Every night I watch the light from the house up on the hill
I love a little boy who lives up there and I guess I always will
But I don't dare knock on his door 'cause his folks won't let me in
So I'll just have to be content to see him 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 him, he loves me but I don't fit in his society
Lord, have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks.

One find day I'll find a way to move from this old shack
I'll hold my head up like a queen and I never ever will look back
But till that morning when we can walk together hand in hand
But I'll just have to be content to see him wherever 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 him, he loves me but I don't fit in his society
Lord, have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks.

Lord have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks...
This song is from the album "Here's Lynn Anderson [Capitol]", "I'm Alright [Chart]" and "Among My Greatest".
