Hank Williams Jr. – Almost Persuaded lyrics

Now this ain't no cheating song, cause I didn't do nothing
Last night all alone in a honky tonk barroom
I met a girl with a drink of beam in her hand
She had ruby red lips and coal black, black hair
And eyes that would tempt any honky tonk 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 cheap honky tonk 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 big ol' southern man
Then I looked into her eyes and I saw that look and
I saw something else the reflection of my wedding band

And I was almost persuaded to stip myself of my pride
Almost persuaded but your sweet love made me stop and go home

That was really hard to do
