OPENER    Mainstream

Circle left
I used to stand on the corner when I was a child
Left allemande, come back you dosado
The men star left
Turn thru at home and go allemande left
Come back, swing the girl and promenade
Spending my time, spending my
Nickles and dimes


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade, go halfway around
Come down the middle, go right and left thru
Square thru to four hands, you move it along and go
Make a right hand star
Heads star left in the middle go full turn and then
Swing the corner, promenade
Spending my time, spending my
Nickles and dimes


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Nickles and dimes, a song at a time for nickels and dimes
Sidewalk rehearsals for dreams that I held in my mind

Allemande left, weave the ring
So if you remember a child on the corner of time
Swing the girl and promenade
I knew that someday I'd repay all the
Nickels and dimes


TAG

Nickles And Dimes
 
 

I used to stand on the corner when I was a child
And I'd play my guitar and sing as the people went by
The sidewalks were crowded but I'd just sing louder cause I didn't mind
Spending my time, spinning my rhymes and singing for nickels and dimes

Nickels and dimes a song at a time for nickels and dimes
I'd brighten their day as they'd go on their way and they'd brighten mine
A sidewalk rehearsal for dreams that I held in my mind
I knew that someday in my own special way I'd repay all their nickels and dimes

I recall the sidewalk each night as I stand on the stage
As I play my guitar and sing for the people who paid
Cause I finally made it to what they all call the big time
But I still remember I still owe some nickels and dimes

Nickels and dimes, a song at a time for nickels and dimes
A sidewalk rehearsal for dreams that I held in my mind
So if you remember a child on the corner of time
You'll know that I wrote this to repay your nickels and dimes

Nickels and dimes, a song at a time for nickels and dimes
A sidewalk rehearsal for dreams that I held in my mind
So if you remember a child on a corner of time
You'll know that I wrote this to repay your nickels and dimes

Nickels and dimes, a song at a time for nickels and dimes
A sidewalk rehearsal for dreams that I held in my mind
So if you remember a child on a corner of time
You'll know that I wrote this to repay your nickels and dimes

Lyrics by Dolly Parton and Floyd Estel Parton.
