Love At The Five And Dime Lyrics
(Spoken with picked guitar background)

One of my greatest fascinations in life has always been a little store where you can go in and get a vanilla coke, and listen to the popcorn machine go 'pop pop pop,' and dig through the record bin and find a record for 69 cents that you've always wanted, all your life.

When I was in high school, the only way you could get from north Austin to south Austin on the bus was to get off the bus in central Austin and get on another bus.

And where you changed the bus at 6th and Congress was a place called a Woolworth's store. And I always had just enough time to run into the Woolworth store and get myself a vanilla coke, dig through the record bin wink at the boys and get back on the bus.

And Woolworth stores are the same everywhere in the world. They have this wonderful smell to 'em - they smell like popcorn and chewing gum rubbed around on the bottom of a leather-soled shoe.

And the first time we went to Europe we landed in London and we were driving through central London and we came to a corner and by golly there was a Woolworth store. And I wanted them to stop the car and let me out so I could fill up my suitcase with unnecessary plastic objects.

And if you've ever been in a big Woolworth store, where there's an elevator, or a lift as they say in Europe, every time the doors open on the elevator they make a little noise like this: {ding}... and I've often been asked what that little noise was... {ding} and that's what it is, it's the elevator doors {ding}...


Rita was sixteen years... hazel eyes and chestnut hair
she made the Woolworth counter shine
Eddie was a sweet romancer, and a darn good dancer
they'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime

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... it's closing time
And love's on sale tonight at this five and dime

Eddie played the steel guitar and his mama cried 'cuz he played in the bars
And kept young Rita out late at night
So, they married up in Abilene... lost a child in Tennessee
still, that love survived

(repeat chorus)

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... singin' a different tune
And sportin' Miss Rita back by his side

{And he sang}
(repeat chorus)

Eddie travelled with the barroom bands... till arthritis took his hands
now he sells insurance on the side
Oh Rita's got her house to keep... she writes dimestore novels of a love so sweet
and they dance to the radio late at night

(repeat chorus)
(repeat 1st verse)

{and they lived a life, a simple life}
They'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime
{and we can all go take a date}
And they'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime
