Little Big Town – Boondocks lyrics

I feel no shame, I'm proud of where I came from:
I was born an' raised in the Boondocks.
One thing I know, no matter where I go,
I keep my heart an' soul in the Boondocks.

An' I can feel that,
Muddy water runnin' through my veins.
An' I can hear that lullaby of the midnight train.
An' it seems to me that it sounds familiar.

I feel no shame, I'm proud of where I came from:
I was born an' raised in the Boondocks.
One thing I know, no matter where I go,
I keep my heart an' soul in the Boondocks.

I can taste that honeysuckle,
An' it's still so sweet,
When it grows wild on the banks of an' old camp creek.
Yeah, an it calls to me like an warm wind blowin'.

I feel no shame, I'm proud of where I came from:
I was born an' raised in the Boondocks.
One thing I know, no matter where I go,
I keep my heart an' soul in the Boondocks.

It's where I learned about livin'.
It's where I learned about love.
It's where I learned about workin' hard,
An' havin' a little is just enough.
It's where I learned about Jesus,
An' knowin' where I stand.
You can take it or leave it,
This is me: this is who I am.

Instrumental Break.

Give me a tin-roof,
A front porch an' a gravel road.
An' that's home to me,
Feels like home to me.

I feel no shame, I'm proud of where I came from:
I was born an' raised in the Boondocks.
One thing I know, no matter where I go,
I keep my heart an' soul in the Boondocks.
I keep my heart an' soul in the Boondocks.

You get a line, I'll get a pole,
We'll go fishin' in the crawfish hole.
Five-card poker on Saturday night,
Church on Sunday mornin'.

You get a line, (You get a line.)
I'll get a pole, (I'll get a pole.)
We'll go fishin'. (We'll go fishin' in the crawfish hole.)
Down in the Boondocks, (Five-card poker on Saturday night,)
Church on Sunday mornin'.

You get a line, (You get a line.)
(You get a line an' I'll get a pole.)
I'll get a pole, (I'll get a pole.)
We'll go fishin'. (We'll go fishin' in the crawfish hole.)
Down in the Boondocks, (Five-card poker on Saturday night,)
(Say a little prayer for me.)
Church on Sunday mornin'.

You get a line, (You get a line.)
(You get a line an' I'll get a pole.)
I'll get a pole, (I'll get a pole.)
We'll go fishin'. (We'll go fishin' in the crawfish hole.)
Down in the Boondocks, (Five-card poker on Saturday night,)
(Say a little prayer for me.)
Church on Sunday mornin'.

    I myself know the meaning of this song is of how they are talking about how grateful they were to grow up in the deep southern country how its raised them right and how it shaped in the people they are and I feel the same way about my roots and where I was raised.
