It's a Short Walk from Heaven to Hell Lyrics

by John Schneider

You were God's best creation
But I didn't know what I had
Till it was too late

When a man's getting older
Seems the young girls get bolder
And temptations are sometimes too great

You gave me all kinds of reasons to stay
But like the fool that I am, I still walked away

And it's a short walk
From Heaven to Hell
A few steps from an angel
That loved me so well

When I left I shook hands
With the Devil himself
And it's a short walk
From Heaven to Hell

She was young, I was foolish
But I needed that young thing
To tell me I could still turn her on

What I took for affection
Was just your reflection
And that's where the whole thing went wrong

'Cause when the loving was over and done
What I took for love, she took for fun

And it's a short walk
From Heaven to Hell
A few steps from an angel
That loved me so well

When I left, I shook hands
With the Devil himself
And it's a short walk
From Heaven to Hell

Yeah, it's a short walk
From Heaven to Hell
