        C                          Em7
Well my time went so quickly I went lickety-splitly
F          G        C
Out to my ol' fifty-five

As I pulled away slowly feelin' so holy
    F                    G  G7
God knows I was feelin' alive.

[Chorus]

Freeway cars and trucks

Stars beginning to fade
Dm    G            C  Am
And I lead the parade

Just a-wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
