Artist/Band: Old 97s
Lyrics for Song: Champaign, Illinois
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - Old 97s



The bottom line's been snorted

The bottom card's been dealt

No one knows like you know right now

How truly bad it felt



All your life you wasted

On dreamin' about the day

Worker bees kill off their queen

And carry all her eggs away



Oh, then if you die fearin' God

And painfully employed

No, you will not go to Heaven

You'll go to Champaign, Illinois



Up north in Chicago

Where booze makes no one blush

Memories come back to you

In a double Bourbon rush



Memories that aren't all bad

And neither, my friend, are you

There is an argument there must be some Heaven meant

For hearts that are half true



Oh, and if you spend your whole life

Rollin' horses into Troy

No, you will not go to heaven

You'll go to Champaign, Illinois

No, you will not go to heaven

You'll go to Champaign, Illinois



Roll on blacktop highway

Circles towards the sun

Springfield's in the distance

And that's the last big one



After that comes judgment

Oh, and judgment will be swift

You will be eliminated

But here's a parting gift



Oh, if you die fearin' God

And painfully employed

No, you will not go to Heaven

You'll go to Champaign, Illinois

No, you will not go to heaven

You'll go to Champaign, Illinois



No, you will not go to heaven

You'll go to Champaign, Illinois
