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 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've 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
