Song Saturday Challenge Alabama-Love in The First Degree 1981

Alabama is one of my all-time favorite groups and has been for years. This is their hit Love In The First Degree, as performed on the Barbara Mandrell Show in 1981. I’m sharing it as part of the#SongSaturdayChallenge I think one thing I love about this cover is their unique harmony and I love good harmony.

Of course, the words are wonderful, too. Here are the words:

I once thought of love as a prisonA place I didn’t want to be.So long ago, I made a decisionTo be footloose and fancy-free.But you came and I was so temptedTo gamble on love just one time.I never thought that I would get caught.It seemed like a perfect crime. Baby, you left me defenseless,But 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 begging 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.But 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.But 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.Love in the first degree…
