  • Last night all alone in a barroom I 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 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
