Oh lord (oh lord)...

Oh boy oh well I told you
Well I told you but I thought you'd 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
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 ol mother
Oh well she keeps 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

Ah Did you bring me, bring me any silver
Oh did you bring me, bring me any gold
Oh did you see me, workin' on South Carolina
Oh 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

    I think what she's saying is that on the path they're taking, there IS no heaven. There is no hope and she's trying to get him to believe it so that he's not afraid to be a little bad with her...
    "Don't talk about it
    Oh boy, don't talk about it
    Don't talk about it
    If you do, I'll cry "
    I think this means that she knows it's wrong what she's doing but she needs him and she doesn't care how sinful he will be for her. She wants what she wants and she'll get it.
    basically:
    Do what you want, don't worry about being bad, live how you want"

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who gets sent to prison and has to work on a chain gang. He's talking to himself and going nuts from the heat and exertion.

    "There ain't no heaven
    On the county road"

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

    "Oh did you see me, workin' on South Carolina
    Oh just to see me work on the county road"

    I dunno why the hell anybody would write a dance song about that but it kicks ass anyway.

    General Commentit has a religious connotation that begs the question about faith

    General CommentI feel the singer is saying there is literally no heaven, in the sense which some believe heaven and hell are right here on earth, implying that there is a hell, but no heaven.
