Love At The Five And Dime

Nanci Griffith


(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
