Love In The First Degree – Alabama

 Verse:
  G#                      D#
I once thought of love as a prison,
    C#                  G#
A place I didn't want to be,
A#m            G#
So long ago, I made a decision
       A#m               D#
To be footloose and fancy-free.
    G#                   D#
But you came and I was so tempted,
   C#                     G#
To gamble on love just one time,
   A#m          G#
I never thought, I would get caught,
    A#m                  D#
It seemed like the perfect crime.

 Chorus:
C#                G#
Baby you left me defenseless,
C#               G#
I've only got one plea,
A#m             G#
Lock me away, inside of your love,
     A#m            D#
And throw away the key.
    C#
I'm guilty,
    D#                G#
Of love in the first degree.

 Verse:
G#                     D#
I thought it would be so simple,
      C#               
Like a thousand times before,
   A#m                   G#
I'd take what I wanted, and just walk away,
      A#m               D#
But I never made it to the door.
     G#                      D#
Now babe I'm not begging for mercy,
     C#                        G#
Go ahead and throw the book at me,
   A#m                G#
If loving you's a crime, I know that I'm
    COLO
