Down In The Boondocks (2:29)

Cover of The Ultimate Sixties Collection

From The Ultimate Sixties Collection and 113 other releases

The Down In the Boondocks Songfacts explains: “Boondocks” is a word we’ve adopted for any rural area, the same as “out in the sticks.” But it was ported to the US through American servicemen stationed in the Philippines - there it comes from a Tagalog word meaning “mountain.” Even in the Philippines, a “boondock” means an uncultured or illiterate person from a rural area.
