Old Five and Dimers Like Me  Billy Joe Shaver

By Billy Joe Shaver

[A]I've spent a lifetime making up my mind to [E]be
[E]More than the measure of what I thought others could [A]see
[A]Good luck and fast bucks are too [A7]far and too few be[D]tween
[E]Cadillac buyers and old five and dimers like [A]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
Reasons for rhymers and old five and dimers like me
Instrumental break
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 much ain't enough for old five and dimers like me
Too far and too high and too deep ain't too much to see
An old five and dimer was all I intended to be
