Ol' 55 Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, my time has come quickly
I go lickety splitly, down to my old '55
As I pulled away slowly
I was feeling so holy
God knows, I was feeling alive

Now the sun's coming up
I'm riding with lady luck
Freeways, cars and trucks
Stars beginning to fade
And I lead the parade

Just a wishing I'd stayed a little longer
Oh, Lord, let me tell you that the feeling's getting stronger

And it's six in the morning
Gave me no warning
I had to be on my way
There's trucks all a passing
And the lights all are flashing
I'm on my way home from the place

Well the sun's coming up
I'm riding with Lady Luck
Freeways, cars and trucks
Stars beginning to fade
And I lead the parade

Just a wishing I'd stayed a little longer
Oh, Lord, let me tell you that the feeling's getting stronger

My time has come quickly
I go lickety splitly, down to my old '55
As I pulled away slowly
I was feeling so holy
God knows, I was feeling alive

Now the sun's coming up
Riding with Lady Luck
Freeways, cars and trucks
Freeways, cars and trucks
Freeways, cars and trucks
