"Sometimes I'm Tempted" as written by and Marty Robbins....
Sometime I'm tempted by big brown eyes
Sometime I'm tempted to cheat and lie
Sometime I'm tempted but won't give in
Old mister Devil ain't gonna win

'Cause when I see him walkin' down the avenue
I think of all the things that other folks might do
Then I turn and run, run, run, run
Straight to baby's arms

Where I'm safe and sound in baby's arms
The urge to cheat sometime is strong
But a little bitty voice tells me it's wrong
Sometimes I'm tempted but won't give in

Old mister Devil ain't gonna win
'Cause when I see him walkin' down the street
I think of what may happen if we chance to meet
And I turn and run, run, run, run

Back to baby's arms
Where I'm safe and sound in baby's arms
Well' a perilous tongue might tell you lies
'Cause you pain, bring you strife

Trust in me I will not falter
Long as there's a spark of life
Evil standin' all around me
Sailin' on a sea of sin

But I won't sink beneath the water
If the water can't get in
The urge to cheat sometime is strong
But a little bitty voice tells me it's wrong

Sometimes I'm tempted but won't give in
Old mister Devil ain't gonna win
'Cause when I see him walkin' down the avenue
I think of all the things that other folks might do

Then I turn and run, run, run, run
Straight to baby's arms
