Old Five And Dimers Like Me

Song Author Billy Joe Shaver Lyrics by: Billy Joe Shaver Performer: Tom T Hall Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I've spent a lifetime making up my mind to[G7] be   
More than the measure of what thought others could [C]see  
Good luck and fast bucks are too far and too few [F]between
There's [G7]Cadillac buyers and old five and dimers like [C]me  

She stood beside me letting me know she would [G7]be   
Something to lean on when everything ran out on [C]me  
Fenced yards ain't hole cards and like as not never will [F]be  
The [G7]reasons for rhymers and old five and dimers like [C]me  

It's taken me so long but now that I know I [G7]believe
All that I do or say is all that I ever will [C]be  
Too far and too high and too deep ain't too much to [F]see  
[G7]Too much ain't enough for old five and dimers like [C]me  

[G7]An old five and dimer was all I intended to [C]be  


You know country people don't shine their boots very often
[G7]They don't shine other folks boots [C]either

I've spent a lifetime making up my mind to be
More than the measure of what thought others could see
Good luck and fast bucks are too far and too few between
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
Fenced yards ain't 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

An old five and dimer was all I intended to be

You know country people don't shine their boots very often
They don't shine other folks boots either
