Alabama Love in the First Degree Lyrics

Last updated: 11/28/2005 10:00:00 AM

Words and Music by Jim Hurt and Tim DuBois

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.

Chorus:
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.

Chorus

Oh yeah. Oh yeah.

Chorus

Oh yeah. Love in the first degree.
Love in the first degree.
Love in the first degree.
