Old Five and Dimers Like Me

Old Five and Dimers Like Me

Emmylou Harris

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

Yes 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 is not never will be
Reason 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 all that I ever will be
Too far and too high and too deep ain't too much to 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 be
Too much ain't enough for old five and dimers like me
And an old five and dimer is all I intended to be
