"South Of Heaven" as written by and Michael Gerald/johnson Lunn....
There's a honky-tonk just south of Georgia
A little salvation just a' waitin' for ya'
I heard it said a long time ago
If your lookin' for your soul
Down a dirt road just across the border

Well the harder it comes you know the easier it goes
If you can make your way a little further down that road, yea
When your caught up in between
Or just dyin' to be set free

(chorus)
South of Heaven
Always endin' up
No matter how I try
I'm just south of Heaven
Don't want to' think you can have it all
'Cause all I need is just south of Heaven

There's a little girl they call the sweet thing
Been some time I'd like to tell you one thing
You have nothin' left to lose
So by the time that you come to
You'll be one more callin' her name

Well the harder it comes you know the easier it goes
If you can make your way a little further down that road, yea
When your caught up in between
Or just dyin' to be set free

(repeat chorus)

(repeat first verse)


(repeat chorus)


And when I die don't cry for me
'Cause I'll be just south of Heaven
South of Heaven
All I want, all I need, all I want
Is south of Heaven
