Tom Waits: Ol' 55

OL' 55
/Tom Waits/

Well my time went so quickly
I went lickety-splickly
Out to my old '55
As I drove away slowly
Feeling so holy
God knows I was feeling alive

Now the sun's coming up
I'm riding with Lady Luck
Freeway 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
Well there's trucks all a-passing me
And the lights are all flashing
I'm on my way home from your place

And now the sun's coming up
I'm riding with Lady Luck
Freeway 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 my time went so quickly
I went lickety-splickly
Out to my old '55
As I pulled away slowly
Feeling so holy
God knows I was feeling alive

Now the sun's coming up
I'm riding with Lady Luck
Freeway cars and trucks
Freeway cars and trucks
Freeway cars and trucks
