Almost Persuaded

By David Houston

Almost Persuaded~

Last night all alone in a barroom
Met a girl with a drink in her hand
She had ruby red lips, coal black hair
And eyes that would tempt any man.

Then she came and sat down at my table
As she placed her soft hands in mine
I found myself wanting to kiss her
For temptation was flowing like wine.

And I was almost persuaded to strip myself of my
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 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.
