Words & Music by Erwin King
Recorded by Hank Snow

Why do you punish me for loving you,
Youre counting my mistakes, how about yours?
Why do you sentence me to nights of tears?
Convicting all these dreams Ive dreamed for years?

My heart cries out behind these prison bars,
It pleads to you for your true love to set it free.
Why do you punish me? Is love a crime?
If so I'll spend a lifetime loving, serving time.
