Just this side of Heaven there's a little white house
Take a ride at the Pearly Gates, go 'bout a quarter mile south
There's an angel sittin' on a front porch swing
In a cotton gown waitin' on you gettin' in

Hallelujah, I can see the shimmer of the porch light glow
Hallelujah, I can see her shadow in the soft halo
Gonna take her in my arms and hold her tight
Love her like a devil and spend all night just this side of Heaven

Just this side of Heaven, I was a lonely soul
Till I found my salvation in the woman I hold
I swear her love is spiritual
Nothin' short of a miracle for me

Hallelujah, I can see the shimmer of the porch light glow
Hallelujah, I can see her shadow in the soft halo
Gonna take her in my arms and hold her tight
Love her like a devil and spend all night just this side of Heaven

And her hair falls down like a gentle rain
Makin' music, gonna tell her of callin' my name
Hey, yeah

Hallelujah, I can see the shimmer of the porch light glow
Hallelujah, I can see her shadow in the soft halo
Gonna take her in my arms and hold her tight
Love her like a devil and spend all night just this side of Heaven

Just this side of Heaven
Just this side of Heaven
