This drunken, bluesy tune is about the Black Lips growing up in Atlanta. Bassist Jared Swilley told Music Feeds
it was a tough time for them. "We had public school bussing so there were a lot of black kids that screamed 'cracker' and 'white honky' and would shove your face into the lockers and kick your ass all the time," he recalled. "Basically Boys In The Wood is the white version of Boyz N The Hood
. It's not easy being white here."
