About this song...

Wow does this song have a story behind it. But you don't need to know it. This song is so damn personal I almost didn't put it on here. But, you need examples like this, because songs like this...from the heart, are always to me the best kind. (And no..she didn't listen, and we divorced.)

            The Old Five & Dime

Copyright (c) 2006 Carl Henry.

Well it's true I been drinkin, some pints around town
With my good friends and neighbors, and foolin around
My dreams just won't stop love they ain't never died
But your lovin's dried up like the ol five and dime

I been troubled you know love, but I ain't whored around
Though at times I been tempted, it's known around town
But there's no good for me in it, I never did try
Though your lovin's dried up like the ol five and dime

CHORUS

I'm old and I'm tired, I'm drunker than shit
But if this is the way that life's gonna be I should split
"Cause your messin' my head up, I'm a drunken 'ol swine
Since your lovin dried up like the ol five and dime

I may be a drunk bastard, but love I'm no whore
And the love that you had babe, has come now no more
Your a angry ol shit, and I'm doin my time
Since your lovin dried up like the ol five and dime

CHORUS

I'll be drinkin one evenin, and playin guitar
And find some young lady, who'll come from afar
And she'll give me her beauty, I'll be in my prime
If your love is still dried up like the ol five and dime

CHORUS

Since your lovin' dried up like the old...five and dime
