George Jones - 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 eyes that would tempt any man

Then she came and sat down at my table and 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 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
