Kenny Loggins - Down In The Boondocks

Your rating:
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
Until that day 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, goin'

chorus repeats 2x

Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks
Mama have mercy on a boy from down in the - ooh
Have mercy baby, a little mercy, hang around all day, take me

Down in the boondocks, da-da-down in the boondocks  (repeats out)
