Dead South, The - Heaven In A Wheelbarrow Lyrics




Well if upon that day I die
I'm too drunk to walk let alone to drive
And I'm kickin' and a-spittin' like I'm wild and feral
Won't you take me to heaven in a wheelbarrow

I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
I'm going to heaven yes sir
I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
So won't you take me there

Well you can go on your golden steed
Or up on an angels wings with speed
Or even in a pyramid like a pharaoh
But I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
There's a gal on the wrong side of town
Who gets me up when I'm goin' down
She keeps me in line, shoots straight and narrow
Now she's taking me to heaven in a wheelbarrow

I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
I'm going to heaven yes sir
I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
So won't you take me there

Well I met a woman with a cold heart
Tried to take me to hell in a shopping cart
Said "Woman, you're puttin' my soul in peril"
I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow

I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
I'm going to heaven yes sir
I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
So won't you take me there

I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
I'm going to heaven yes sir
I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
So won't you take me there

A lot of men don't stand so tall
Most of us you know we gotta fall
Some are lookin' life down a shotgun barrel
But I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow

I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
I'm going to heaven yes sir
I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
So won't you take me there
I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
I'm going to heaven yes sir
I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
So won't you take me there

Dead South, The Heaven In A Wheelbarrow Comments
  1. OsakaRose

    Darn it! I can't sing this fast! ROFL!

  2. A-Task Productions

    I really want to see a music video of just a drunk guy being pushed around in a wheelbarrow running from cops who are trying to take him to "Hell in a shopping cart"

  3. Joshua M. Webb

    Is this song about delusions of grandeur or should I interpret literally

  4. mrsroadrunner

    when i heard this on the new cd i actually laughed haha

  5. Joe Mamma

    I want to play this at church.

  6. MonkeyGirl Burns

    Would you rather go to heaven in a wheelbarrow or be in hell with good company?

    Kapitan Venom

    That's quite a question you ask.

    ReverseWingover

    Well, I would certainly have more friends in hell. Off to see them in February in Birmingham (UK) Can't wait.

    MonkeyGirl Burns

    @ReverseWingover I saw them this year in Iowa, USA. They're amazing.

    ReverseWingover

    @MonkeyGirl Burns I can't wait, I've seen Sabbath, Purple, Alice Cooper, Ozzy, Kitaro (Who?? - seriously check him out, Loud with a spliff and plenty of whisky ;-) ) more bands than I care to mention but Dead South have really got my attention. Proper music played by a bunch of guys who enjoy what they do and do it very well indeed. Music like it should be.

  7. Mr. Mellow

    My mum has become obsest with these guys. Plays there songs non stop......i now know half of the new songs from a 30min car trip

    Jeremvy .V

    Your mom is the best

  8. GALGAN dg

  9. player 69

    This makes me want to start singing it while I'm in church.

    CodeSword

    And The Holy Father with a drunkard will begin to dance dances hailing from the Wild West.

    If upon that day I die
    I'm too drunk to walk let alone to drive
    And I'm kickin' and I'm spittin' like I'm wild and feral
    Won't you take me to heaven in a wheelbarrow

    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    I'm going to heaven yes sir
    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    So won't you take me there

    Oh you can go and you go [?]
    Wrapped on an angels wings of speed
    Or even in the pyramid like a Pharaoh
    But I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    I met some guy on the wrong side of town
    Who gets me up when I'm going down
    She keeps me in line shootin' straight and narrow
    Now she's taking me to heaven in a wheelbarrow

    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    I'm going to heaven yes sir
    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    So won't you take me there

    Well I met woman with a cold heart
    She tried to take me to heaven in a shopping cart
    Said woman you're putting my soul in peril
    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow

    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    I'm going to heaven yes sir
    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    So won't you take me there

    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    I'm going to heaven yes sir
    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    So won't you take me there

    A lot of men don't stand so tall
    Most of us you know we gotta fall
    Some are lookin' life down a shotgun barrel
    But I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow

    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    I'm going to heaven yes sir
    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    So won't you take me there
    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    I'm going to heaven yes sir
    I'm going to heaven in a wheelbarrow
    So won't you take me there

    Garrett Cunningham

    It's
    "She tried to take me to Hell in a shopping cart."
    Not Heaven. Sorry if this came off as rude.
    Thank you for all the lyrics by the way. Much appreciated. :D
