Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 

Almost Persuaded

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 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 blind 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 sweet lips lead me on.
Almost persuaded,
But your sweet love made me stop and go home.
