LOVE IN THE FIRST DEGREE (Tim DuBois / Jim Hurt 1981) Alabama 1981 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 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. 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 beggin' for mercy Go ahead and throw the book at me If lovin' you's a crime, I know that I'm As guilty as a man can be. 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. Love in the first degree, oh yeah Oh yeah. 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. Love in the first degree oh yeah Love in the first degree Love in the first degree oh yeah Love in the first degree Love in the first degree Love in the first degree (fade) (Transcribed by David Story - June 2013)
