Ol' 55
Lyrics:Tom Waits Music:Tom Waits


One, two, three, four

Well my time has come 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
Freeways, cars, and trucks
Stars beginning to fade
And I lead the parade
Just a wishing I stayed a little longer
Oh Lord, lemme tell you 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 ,
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 stayed a little longer
Oh Lord, lemme tell you 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...
