Old Five And Dimers ----Billy Joe Shaver
Verse 1:

A E
I've spent a lifetime, making up my mind to be EE7 A
More than the measure of what i thought others could see
AD
Good luck and fast bucks are too far and too few between
E E7 A
Cadillac buyers and old five and dimers like me

Verse 2:
A E
She stood beside me letting me know she would be
E E7A
Something to lean on when everything ran out on me
AD
Fenced yards ain't hold cards and like as not never will be
E E7 A
Reasons for rhymers and old five and dimers like me


Verse 3:
A E
It's taken me so long but now that i know i believe
EA
All that i do or say is all that i ever will be
A D
Too far and too high and too deep ain't too much to be
E E7 A
Too much ain't enough for old five and dimers like me

E E7A
An old five and dimer was all i intented to be
