ALMOST PERSUADED
Written By: David Houston
Performed By: Lefty Frizzell
Performed By: Conway Twitty


INTRO: One Strum on the G


VERSE ONE

G               G7        C
Last night all alone in a Bar Room. 
      G                        D
Met a girl with a drink in her hand.  
         G        G7        C    
She  had ruby red lips, and coal black hair, 
    G                D        G
and eyes that would tempt any man.  

 
VERSE TWO

G                 G7              C           
Then she came and sat down at my table, 
           G                        D
and as she placed her soft hands in mine.  
   G            G7        C
I found myself wanting to kiss her. 
     G              D           G
For temptation was flowing like wine.  


CHORUS

G         G  G7       C          G                  D   D7
And I was al-most per-suaded to strip myself of my pride.  
G  G7       C         G        D            G  (walk down to E) E
Al-most per-suaded to push my conscience a-side.
  


VERSE THREE ( KEY CHANGE TO A )
    
E        A              A7         D
Then we danced and she whispered I need you.
          A                       E        
Take me a-way from here and be my man.  
        A              A7         D
Then I looked into her eyes and I saw it. 
        A          E            A
The re-flection of my wedding  band. 
 

CHORUS 

          A  A7       D          A                       E  E7
And I was al-most per-suaded to let strange lips lead me on 
A  A7        D               A                     E           D    A
Al-most per-suaded but your sweet love... made me stop and go home
