Love in the First Degree  Alabama

"Love In The First Degree"
Capo 1st Fret
1st Verse:
I [G]once thought of love as a prison,[D]
A pl[C]ace I didn't want to be,[G]
[Am]So long ago, I made a [G]decision
To be foo[Am]tloose and fancy-free.[D]
But yo[G]u came and I was so tempted,[D]
To ga[C]mble on love just one time,[G]
I n[Am]ever thought, I wo[G]uld get caught,
It s[Am]eemed like the perfect crime.[D]
[C]Baby you left me defenseles[G]s,
[C]I've only got one plea,[G]
[Am]Lock me away, inside of[G] your love,
And thr[Am]ow away the key.[D]
I'm gu[C]ilty,
Of l[D]ove in the first degree.[G]
2nd Verse:
[G]I thought it would be so simple,[D]
Like a tho[C]usand times before,
I'd t[Am]ake what I wanted, and just walk [G]away,
But I ne[Am]ver made it to the door.[D]
Now bab[G]e I'm not begging for mercy,[D]
Go ahea[C]d and throw the book at me,[G]
If [Am]loving you's a crime, I know[G] that I'm
As gu[Am]ilty as a man can be.[D]
(Repeat Chorus)
Tag: Lov[C]e in the first de[G]gree.
(Alternate between Chorus and Tags and fade out)
