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 Hell

From hillbilly Heaven
To honky tonk Hell
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 Hell

 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 Hell
From hillbilly Heaven
To honky tonk Hell
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 Hell

He's gone from hillbilly Heaven
To honky tonk Hell
