[Verse 1]
Bb Bbsus2Rita was sixteen years, hazel eyes and chestnut hair
Eb Bb Bbsus4 BbShe made the Woolworth counter shine
Bb Bbsus2And Eddie was a sweet romancer and darn good dancer
Eb BbAnd they'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime
And they'd sing [Chorus]
BbDance a little closer to me
Cm7Dance a little closer now
Bb Cm11Dance a little closer tonight
BbDance a little closer to me
Cm7 Cm11 Bb'cause it's closing time and love's on sale tonight at this five and dime.
[Verse 2]
Bb Bbsus2Eddie played the steel guitar and his momma cried 'cause he played in the bars
Eb Bb Bbsus4 BbAnd he kept young Rita out late at night
Bb Bbsus2So they married up in Abilene, lost a child in Tennessee
Eb BbBut still that love survived
'Cause they'd sing [Chorus]
BbDance a little closer to me
Cm7Dance a little closer now
Bb Cm11Dance a little closer tonight
BbDance a little closer to me
Cm7 Cm11 Bb'cause it's closing time and love's on sale tonight at this five and dime.
[Verse 3]
Bb Bbsus2One of the boys in Eddie's band took a shine to Rita's hand
Eb Bb Bbsus4 BbSo Eddie ran off with the bass-man's wife
Bb Bbsus2Oh, but he was back by June singin' a different tune
Eb BbAnd sporting Miss Rita back by his side
And he'd sing [Chorus]
BbDance a little closer to me
Cm7Dance a little closer now
Bb Cm11Dance a little closer tonight
BbDance a little closer to me
Cm7 Cm11 Bb'cause it's closing time and love's on sale tonight at this five and dime.
[Verse 4]
Bb Bbsus2Eddie traveled with the bar room band till arthritis took his hands
Eb Bb Bbsus4 BbNow he sells insurance on the side
Bb Bbsus2And Rita's got her house to keep; she writes dime store novels of love so sweet
Eb BbThey dance to the radio late at night
And still sing [Chorus]
BbDance a little closer to me
Cm7Dance a little closer now
Bb Cm11Dance a little closer tonight
BbDance a little closer to me
Cm7 Cm11 Bb'cause it's closing time and love's on sale tonight at this five and dime.
[Verse 1]
Bb Bbsus2Rita was sixteen years, hazel eyes and chestnut hair
Eb Bb Bbsus4 BbShe made the Woolworth counter shine
Bb Bbsus2And Eddie was a sweet romancer and darn good dancer
Eb BbAnd they'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime
Eb BbAnd they'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime
Eb BbAnd they'd waltz the aisles of the five and dime
