Tammy Wynette Lyrics

Almost Persuaded Lyrics

(Billy Sherrill/Glenn Sutton)

Last night, all alone in a bar room
Met a man with a drink in his hand
He had baby-blue eyes, coal black hair
And a smile that a girl understands.

Then he came and sat down at my table
And as he placed his hand over mine
I found myself wanting to kiss him
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 he whispered, "I need you!
Let me take you away, and be your man."
Then I looked into his 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.
