Old Five And Dimers Like Me
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Billy Joe Shaver

Tabbed by Larry Mofle
9/5/21
 

C                                          G
I've spent a lifetime making up my mind to be
G                                                  C
More than the measure of what thought others could see
C                                        C7        F
Good luck and fast bucks are too far and too few between
        G                                            C
There's Cadillac buyers and old five and dimers like me
 
She stood beside me letting me know she would be
Something to lean on when everything ran out on me
Well, fenced yards and hole cards and like as not never will be
The reasons for rhymers and old five and dimers like me
 
It's taken me so long but now that I know I believe
All that I do or say is all that I ever will be
Too far and too high and too deep ain't too much to see
Too much ain't enough for old five and dimers like me

And old five and dimer is all I intended to be
 
Spoken:
You know country people don't shine their boots very often
And they don't shine other folks boots either
