She handled herself well
Been handled by two guards
She still looked like a prom queen in the back of the sheriff's car

A crowd lined up from the courthouse
To the jailhouse down the street
How could they talk so bad about a girl who was so sweet

Rita's heart turned to ice on a hot night in July
She did what she had to do
They don't believe the reasons why
How he used her for a doormat
When he was sober enough to walk
As far as I'm concerned, he was Rita's only fault

You know iIve always loved her
And one time she loved me too
And that first love never let me go the way the others do

She left me for the quarterback
I knew him back in school
He had a shiny car and a fast smile but always knew he was a fool

Rita's heart turned to ice on a hot night in July
She did what she had to do
They don't believe the reasons why
How he used her for a doormat
When he was sober enough to walk
As far as I'm concerned, he was Rita's only fault

Now I go to see her Sundays
I see the tears in her eyes
And I see the same sweet smile that hell can't disguise

If I had only known
I'd have done him in myself
I'd gladly take her place in that cold gray cell

Rita's heart turned to ice on a hot night in July
She did what she had to do
They don't believe the reasons why
How he used her for a doormat
When he was sober enough to walk
As far as I'm concerned, he was Rita's only fault
As far as I'm concerned, he was Rita's only fault
