Charlie Rich

Charlie Rich - Almost Persuaded

rate me

(Billy Sherrill - Glenn Sutton)

Last night all alone in a barroom

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...
