Jerry Jeff Walker — Old Five And Dimers Like Me lyrics

Billy Joe Shaver

Yea, well I spent a lifetime
Just makin up my mind to be,
More than the measure of
What I thought others could see.
Good luck and those fast bucks
Are too few, and too far between,
Those other Cadillac drivers
And those old five and dimers like me.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/jerry-jeff-walker-old-five-and-dimers-like-me-lyrics.html ]
You know, she stood beside me,
Tellin me she would be something to lean on,
When everything ran out on me.
No fenced yards ain t hole cards
Like as not, never will be.
Any reason for rhymers
And those old five and dimers like me.

Now I ve searched for so long,
Now that I ve found that I believe
All that I do or say
Is all I ever will be.
Too far and too high and too deep
Ain t too much to be.
Yeah, too much just ain t enough
For those old five and dimers like me.
I guess an old five and dimer
Is all I intended to be.
