Love in the First Degree  Alabama

G (8ct)(strummed up)
[1st Verse] 
I [G]once thought love as a [Cadd9]prison
a [G2]place I didn't want to [G]be
[F2]So long ago I[Em] made a decision
to be [Dsus4]footloose and fancy [D]free
[2nd verse}
But [G]you came and I was so [Cadd9]tempted
to [G2]gamble on love just one [G]time
[F2]I never thought [Em]I would get caught
It [Am7]seemed like the perfect [Dsus4]crime[D]
[1st Cborus] 
[C]Baby you left me de[G]fenseless
[C]I've only got one [Dsus4]plea[D]
[C]Lock me away in[Bm]side of your love
[Am7]Throw away the [Dsus4]key[D]
I'm [C]guilty of [D]love in the first de[G]gree
[3rd verse] 
[G]I thought it would be so [Cadd9]simple
Like a [G2]thousand times [G]before
[F2]I'd take what I wanted [Em]Just walk away
But I [Dsus4]never made it to the [D]door
Now [G]Babe I'm not begging for [Cadd9]mercy
Go [G2]ahead and throw the book at [G]me
If [F2]lovin' you's a crime, [Em]I know that I'm
as [Am7]guilty as a man can [Dsus]be[D]
[2nd Cborus] 
[C]Baby you left me de[G]fenseless
[C]I've omly got one [Dsus]plea[D]
[C]Lock me away, in[Bm]side of your love
And [Am7]throw away the [Dsus]key[D]
I'm [Am7]guilty of [D]love in the first de[C]gree
(Love in the [G]first degree) Oh [C]yea Oh [Dsus]yea[D]
[C]Baby you left me def[G]enseless
[C]I've only got one [Dsus]plea[D]
[C]Lock me away, i[Bm]nside of your love
And [Am7]throw away the k[Dsus]ey[D]
I'm [Am7]guilty of l[D]ove in the first de[C]gree
(Love in the f[G]irst degree) Oh y[C]ea
(Love in the f[G]irst degree)[C]
[G] [C] [G] [C]
