The Oak Publications Bluegrass Songbook has slightly different words. Most of it doesn't make any difference, but the first verse starts like this:

Everybody knows the reason for the fall
When woman tempted man down in paradise's hall.

I think this is right, because I've always taken the "fall" here to be talking about the "Fall of Man," i.e. the expulsion from Paradise or Eden, that came about because Eve tempted Adam.
