"Hillbilly Heaven to Honky Tonk Hell" 
By Kenny Chesney, Tracy Lawrence, and George Jones 
Written by Huffman/Mullis/Geiger 
Transcribed by Logan Mikesell

Capo 3 
 
Intro:  D  A  D 
 
On the [D]hillside in Hazard sits a [G]new double[D]wide 
Gods little acre, pure para[A]dise. 
A [D]poor boy found heaven, with a [G]good county [D]girl. 
He had all he wanted, she [A]was his whole [D]world. 
 
But [D]working the coal mine, can [G]wear a man [D]down. 
He started spending too much time in []town. 
[D]He found temptation, fell [G]under its [D]spell. 
Hillbilly heaven went to [A]honky tonk [D]hell.  [D/E]-[D/F#] 
 
Chorus 
From [G]Hillbilly heaven to [D]honky tonk hell 
From a warm home fire burning, to a cold cheap mo[A]tel  
And an [D]angel is crying, cause her good man [G]fell,  
From [D]hillbilly heaven to [A]honky tonk [D]hell. 
 
Instrumental:  D  A  D 
 
(Same chords as first verse) 
Somewhere in Hazard 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 living though hes lost his life. 
 
(Key change to E) 
Now theres a [E]job in the coal mine that [A]needs to be [G#m]filled 
And a heartache in Hazard that wont ever [F#m]heal 
[E]He had it all, now [A]its all for [E]sale 
And hillbilly heavens gone to [B]honky tonk [E]hell 
 
Repeat chorus in key of E 
 
Tag: 
Hes gone from [E]Hillbilly heaven to [B]honky tonk [E]hell
