Billy Joe Royal vs. D-Faction



Down In The Boondocks
Billy Joe Royal
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 the boy from
Down in the boondocks

Every night I watch the lights
From the house up on 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

One fine day I’ll find the 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 the boy from
Down in the boondocks

D-Faction
Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks

I love her

But I don’t fit in her society
Lord have mercy on a boy
From down in the boondocks

To see her whenever I can

He loves me
But I don’t fit in her society
Lord have mercy on a boy
From down in the boondocks

  1. Yeah, that's the song I was thinking of the other day :) Can't decide which version I like better here, leaning towards D-Faction though

  2. I love Billy Joe Royal's version the best. However,I like D-Faction because they really made it their own and it is really good. I like both.

  3. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! Really? You're leaning towards D-Faction's version, but, but...that would make you kinda hip?
