OL' 55' by Tom Waits

[Verse 1]

        C                          Em7
Well my time went so quickly I went lickety-splitly
F          G        C
Out to my ol' fifty-five
        C              Em7
As I pulled away slowly feelin' so holy
    F                    G  G7
God knows I was feelin' alive.

[Chorus]

            C    Em7    F  G  G7
And now the sun's comin' up
    C          Em7    F  G  G7
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
C      Em7      F    Em
Freeway cars and trucks
Dm    G            C  Am
Stars beginning to fade
Dm    G            C  Am
And I lead the parade
Dm    G          Am
Just a-wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
D                      F                G7
Lord don't you know the feelin's gettin' stronger.

[Verse 2]
