Almost Persuaded

In the style of

David Houston


last night
all alone
in a bar room
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
