merle haggard – almost persuaded lyrics


last night, all alone in a barroom
i met a girl with a drink in her hand
she had ruby red lips and coal black hair
and a smile that would tempt any man.

then she came and sat down at my table
and as she placed her soft hands on mine
i found myself wanting to kiss her
for temptation was flowing like wine.

and i was almost persuaded
to strip myself of my pride
almost persuaded
to push my conscience aside.

then we danced and she whispered
i need you take me away from here and be my man
then i looked into her eyes and i saw it
the reflection of my wedding band.

and i was almost persuaded
to let strange lips lead me on
almost persuaded but your sweet love
made me stop and go home…
