Lynn Anderson — Down In The Boondocks lyrics

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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/lynn-anderson-down-in-the-boondocks-lyrics.html ]
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...

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...
Lord have mercy on the girl from down in the boondocks
