  • I feel no shame
    I'm proud of where I came from
    I was born and raised in the boondocks
    One thing I know
    No matter where I go
    I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

    And I can feel
    That muddy water running through my veins
    And I can hear that lullaby of a midnight train
    It sings to me and it sounds familiar

    I feel no shame
    I'm proud of where I came from
    I was born and raised in the boondocks
    One thing I know
    No matter where I go
    I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

    And I can taste
    That honeysuckle and it's still so sweet
    When it grows wild
    On the banks down at old camp creek
    Yeah, and it calls to me like a warm wind blowing

    I feel no shame
    I'm proud of where I came from
    I was born and raised in the boondocks
    One thing I know
    No matter where I go
    I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

    It's where I learned about living
    It's where I learned about love
    It's where I learned about working hard
    And having a little was just enough

    It's where I learned about Jesus
    And knowing where I stand
    You can take it or leave it, this is me
    This is who I am

    Give me a tin roof
    A front porch and a gravel road
    And that's home to me
    It feels like home to me

    I feel no shame
    I'm proud of where I came from
    I was born and raised in the boondocks
    One thing I know
    No matter where I go
    I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

    I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the craw fish hole
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night
    Church on Sunday morning

    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the craw fish hole
    (Down in the boondocks)
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night (sing a little prayer for me)
    Church on Sunday morning

    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the craw fish hole
    (Down in the boondocks)
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night (sing a little prayer for me)
    Church on Sunday morning

    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the craw fish hole
    (Down in the boondocks)
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night (sing a little prayer for me)
    Church on Sunday morning

    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the craw fish hole
    (Down in the boondocks)
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night (sing a little prayer for me)
    Church on Sunday morning

    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the craw fish hole
    (Down in the boondocks)
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night (sing a little prayer for me)
    Church on Sunday morning

    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the craw fish hole
    (Down in the boondocks)
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night (sing a little prayer for me)
