I stand accused of loving you too much
I hope, I sure hope it's not a crime
'Cause I'm guilty

Oh, I hope that I never have to testify
If I do, everyone's gonna cry
That boy is guilty of loving you

And though you belong to another
And I may not stand a ghost of a chance
I'll tell the world that I love you
And I'm a victim of circumstance
That's been proven guilty, oh, yes, I am

Did you know one touch of your hand
And I find myself on the witness stand
Shouting out all over the land
Hey, hey, I'm guilty, guilty of living you

I'm guilty but what can I do
I wanna hold you
