Almost Persuaded Lyrics By Etta James

    last night all alone at a party
    i met a man with a drink in his hand
    he had soft brown eyes and coal black hair
    and a smile a girl could understand

    then he came and sat down at my table
    and placed his warm hand on mine now
    and i found myself wanting longing to kiss him yes i did
    for temptation was flowing like wine

    and oh i was all almost persuaded
    to strip myself apart apart yes
    oh almost nearly persuaded now
    to push my push my ole conscience right on the side

    then we danced then we danced he whispered baby i need you now
    he said to me let me take you away ooh i wanna be your man
    than i looked in his eyes and i saw it yeah i saw it
    i saw the reflection of my my wedding band

    oh i was almost almost almost persuaded yes i was
    to let a strange lips somebody’s lips lure me lure me on now
    oh i was almost yeah nearly nearly persuaded
    but your your sweet love made me stop made me stop and go on
