Martin Gore – 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 her
She loves me
But I don't fit in her society
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks

Ev'ry night I watch the light
From the house upon the hill
I love a little girl who lives up there
And I guess I always will
But I don't dare knock on her door 'cause
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
She loves me
But I don't fit in her society
Lord have mercy on a boy from down in the boondocks

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
And 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
She loves me
But I don't fit in 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
