Ol' 55 Lyrics

by Tom Waits

Time went so quickly, I went lickety-splitly
Out to my ol' '55
Pulled away slowly, feelin' so holy
God knows I was feelin' alive

And now the sun's comin' up
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
Freeway cars and trucks

Stars beginning to fade
And I lead the parade
Just a wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
Oh Lord, that feeling's gettin' stronger

Now it's six in the mornin', gave me no warnin'
I had to be on my way
Lights passin' and trucks are flashin'
I'm on my way home from your place

And now the sun's comin' up
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
Freeway cars and trucks
