from hillbilly heaven, to honky tonk hell lyrics – kenny chesney

kenny chesney, george jones & tracy lawrence

on a hillside in hazzard
sets a new double-wide
god’s little acre
your paradise.

a poor boy found heaven
with a good country girl
he had all he wanted
she was his whole world.

but working the coal mine
can wear a man down
he started spending
too much time in town.

he found temptation
fell under it’s spell
and hillbilly heaven
went to honky tonk h*ll.

from hillbilly heaven
to honky tonk h*ll
from a warm home fire burning
to a cold, cheap motel.

and an angel is crying
’cause her good man fell
from hillbilly heaven
to honky tonk h*ll.

somewhere in hazzard
on a dark, dead-end street
where whiskey and heartache
and old memories meet.

he looks for salvation
in a bottle each night
and just goes on livin’
though he’s lost his life.

now there’s a job in the coal mine
that needs to be filled
and a heartache in hazzard
that won’t ever heal.

he had it all
now it’s all for sale
and hillbilly heaven’s
gone to honky tonk h*ll.

from hillbilly heaven
to honky tonk h*ll
from a warm home fire burning
to a cold, cheap motel.

and an angel is crying
’cause her good man fell
from hillbilly heaven
to honky tonk h*ll.

he’s gone from hillbilly heaven
to honky tonk h*ll…
