    (duet vocal by Darius Rucker)

    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 & Dime

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

    Chorus: And they'd sing
    Dance a little closer to me
    Dance a closer now
    Dance a little closer tonight
    Dance a little closer to me
    'cuz it's closing time
    And love's on sale tonight
    At the Five & Dime

    One of the boys in Eddie's band
    Took a shine to Rita's hand
    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 by his side

    (Chorus)

    Eddie travelled with his bar room band
    'Till arthritis took his hands
    Now he sells insurance on the side
    Rita's got her house to keep
    She writes dimestore novels
    Of a love so sweet
    They dance to the radio late at night

    (Chorus)

    Rita was sixteen years
    Hazel eyes and chestnut hair
    She really made the Woolworth counter shine
    Eddie was a sweet romancer
    And a darn good dancer
    They'd waltz the aisles of the Five & Dime
