Kathy Mattea – Love At The Five And Dime lyrics
Rita was sixteen years, hazel eyes and chestnut hair
She made the Woolworth counter shine
And Eddie was a sweet romancer and a darn good dancer
They'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime

Now Eddie played the steel guitar and his mama cried
'Cause he played in the bars and kept young Rita out late at night
So they married up in Abilene, lost a child in Tennessee
Oh, still that love survived 'cause they'd sing

Dance a little closer to me, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight
Dance a little closer to me 'cause it's closing time
And love's on sale tonight at this five and dime

One of the boys in Eddie's band took a shine to Rita's hands
So Eddie ran off with the bass man's wife
Oh, but he was back by June singing a different tune
And sporting Miss Rita back by his side and he sang

Dance a little closer to me, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight
Dance a little closer to me 'cause it's closing time
And love's on sale tonight at this five and dime

Eddie traveled with the barroom bands till arthritis took his hands
Now he sells insurance on the side
And Rita's got a house to keep dime store novels and a love so sweet
They dance to the radio late at night and they sing

Dance a little closer to me, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight
Dance a little closer to me 'cause it's closing time
And love's on sale tonight at this five and dime

Dance a little closer to me, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight
Dance a little closer to me 'cause it's closing time
And love's on sale tonight at this five and dime

    The lyrics in this song is about love so true, and then comes the loss of their child at birth. With that infidelity sets in on both parties. But through their mistakes, and love for one another, they were able to forgive. The point I’m making is: Because God has forgiven us, His command is that we forgive others. As with our relationship with God, reconciliation is up to us. Rita & Eddie obviously reconciled and their love grew stronger.
