***************** OLD FIVE AND DIMERS (LIKE ME) *****************
written by Billy Joe Shaver
performed by Waylon Jennings.


Verse 1:
         A                                         E
	I've spent a lifetime,making up my mind to be
                                                             A
	More than the measure of what i thought others could see
                                                            D
	Good luck and fast bucks are too far and too few between
          E                                          A                
	Cadillac buyers and old five and dimers like me


Verse 2:
         A                                            E
	She stood beside me letting me know she would be
                                                        A
	Something to lean on when everything ran out on me
                                                                D 
	Fenced yards ain't hole cards and like as not never will be
          E                                             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
                                                     A
	All that i do or say is all that i ever will be
                                                           D  
	Too far and too high and too deep ain't too much to be
             E                                             A
	Too much ain't enough for old five and dimers like me

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