Almost Persuaded (Glenn Sutton, Billy Sherrill)
Recorded by D.J. Curtin & The Kerry Blues
1973 - Release RL693 / Marry Me

Last night all alone in a bar-room
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 in her eyes and I saw it
The reflection of my wedding band

And I was almost persuaded
To let soft lips lead me on
Almost persuaded
But your sweet love made me stop and go home

(Original recording by David Houston)
