Almost Persuaded No.2:Ben Colder
#58 on BB Hot 100 and #6 on BB Hot Country
on MGM Records in 1966.


(Verse 1)
G    C                        G
Last night I stumbled in to a barroom, I met 
a girl with a pint in her purse.
        G                    C              G
She was cute as two speckled puppies, and I said, 
     D            G
Ben, you could do worse.

(Verse 2)
G                                   C       G
Then I walked across a room full of tables, walked 
across her table, too.
      G                        D
And I flopped myself down in a chair and said, hi, 

    G                     C          D
She whispered, my name is Mabel, and all I could say, 
was hi, there.

(I said, permit me to introduce myself, Ben Colder, here.

She said, it ain't been no colder here than anyplace else.)

G                C
I had her almost persuaded..(what happened to the doodle-
doodle-doo?..Piano..Thank you.) to slip..strip herself of 
her pride.
G         C          G         D            G
Almost persuaded, to slip me a drink on the side.

(Verse 3)
        Ab                                        Db
Then we danced and we danced and we danced and we danced.
                         Ab                              Eb
That is, I thought I was dancin', somebody stepped on my hand.
       Ab                       Db            Ab          Eb
Then I looked in her eyes and I saw it, the reflection of my 
wedding band.

(And I thought that sure is strange, I ain't even married.

What it was it was my wrist watch.)

Ab                   Db                               Ab
I had her almost persuaded (once more there Argus) to come and 
      Eb   Ab        Db               Ab                 Eb
be my own (almost persuaded) then her boyfriend came and made 
      Db   Ab
me go home.
