Almost Persuaded Lyrics

Artist: Marty Robbins
Album: Gravity Wins Again

Last night all alone in the barroom,
I met a girl with a drink in her hand
she had ruby red lips, coal black hair,
and eyes that woulod tempt any man.

she came and sat down at my table,
and when she put her soft hand in mine,
I found myself wanting to kiss her,
for temptation was flowing like wine

AND I WAS ALMOST PERSUADED,
TO STRIP MY SELF OF MY PRIDE,
AL--MOST PERSUADED
TO PUSH MY CONSCIENCE ASIDE.

We danced and she whispered I need you,
take me away from here and be my man.
then as I looked in her eyes, I saw it,
The reflection of my wedding band.

AND I WAS ALMOST PERSUADED
TO LET STRANGE LIPS LEAD ME ON
AL--MOST PERSUEDED
BUT YOUR SWEET LOVE MADE ME STOP AND GO HOME.
