Almost Persuaded



Last night all alone in a barroomMet a girl with a drink in her handShe had ruby red lips, coal black hairAnd eyes that would tempt any man.
Then she came and sat down at my tableAs she placed her soft hands in mineI found myself wanting to kiss herFor temptation was flowing like wine.
And I was almost persuaded to strip myself of my prideAlmost persuaded to push my conscience asideThen we danced and she whispered, "I need you,Take me away from here and be my man."
Then I looked into her eyes and saw itThe reflection of my wedding bandAnd I was almost persuaded to let strange lips lead me onAlmost persuaded but your sweet love made me stop and go home.
