John Schneider — It's A Short Walk From Heaven To Hell lyrics

You were God's best creation
But I didn't know what I had
Till it was too late
When a man's gettin' 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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/john-schneider-its-a-short-walk-from-heaven-to-hell-lyrics.html ]
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 lovin' 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
