Papa writes to Johnny.
Johnny can't come home,
'Cause he's been on the chain gang too long.
What is this supposed to mean? I could make sense of it if it were trying to say Johnny hasn't served his time yet and therefore can't come home. But that would mean he hasn't been on the chain gang long enough. I can't figure a way how being on the chain gang too long would contribute to Johnny's inability to come home.
