Alabama - Love In The First Degree Chords

I once thought of love as a prison,

A place I didn't want to be,

So long ago, I made a decision

To be footloose and fancy-free.

But you came and I was so tempted,

To gamble on love just one time,

I never thought, I would get caught,

It seemed like the perfect crime.


Baby you left me defenseless,

I've only got one plea,

Lock me away, inside of your love,

And throw away the key.

I'm guilty,

Of love in the first degree.

2nd Verse:

I thought it would be so simple,

Like a thousand times before,

I'd take what I wanted, and just walk away,

But I never made it to the door.

Now babe I'm not begging for mercy,

Go ahead and throw the book at me,

If loving you's a crime, I know that I'm

As guilty as a man can be.
