Oh lord (oh lord)...

Oh boy I thought I told you
Well I told you but I thought you know
There ain't no heaven
Oh lord, there ain't no heaven
There ain't no heaven
On the county road

Don't talk about it
Boy oh boy, don't talk about it
Don't talk about it
If you do, I'll cry
Don't come around me
Oh lord, don't come around me
Don't come around me
If you do, I'll die

Oh lord, there ain't no heaven
Oh lord, there ain't no heaven

Down at the station stood my dear old mother
She keep on, keep on screamin' and cryin'
"Oh lord I wonder what my son has done"

Oh lord, there ain't no heaven
Oh lord, there ain't no heaven
Oh lord

Did you bring me, bring me any silver
He didn't bring me, bring me any gold
Oh did you see me, workin' on South Carolina
Just to see me work on the county road

Oh lord (oh lord), there ain't no heaven
Oh lord (oh lord), there ain't no heaven
(Oh lord, oh lord)

There ain't no heaven (there ain't no heaven)
(Oh lord, there ain't no heaven)
Oh lord (oh lord), there ain't no heaven.

    Song MeaningIt seems obvious this song refers to someone working on the chain gang on a county road. "There ain't no heaven" refers to the hell the singer is going through. The part about the "dear old mother" is a standard staple of prison blues.

    The "don't talk about it" and "don't come around me" parts presumably refer to the singer not wanting to think about what he'd done. And of course someone working on the chain gang is not going to be brought any silver or gold.

    General CommentIt should be noted this song is confusingly attributed to 'Champion' - the American rock band and not 'DJ Champion and his G-Strings' - the Canadian DJ and his band (DJ Champion is the correct listing on Songmeanings.net).

    General CommentRobotechMaster and HypnoKit are kind of stupid for thinking that the singer is a guy. Morons.
