DAVE ALVIN lyrics - Ol' 55

DAVE ALVIN
"Ol' 55"

Well my time went so quickly
And I went lickety-splitly
Out to my old 55
And 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
Freeways, cars and trucks

And it's six in the morning
Gave me no warning
That I had to be on my way
Now these trucks all a-passin' me
And these lights all a-flashin'
Baby, I'm on my way home from your place

And now the sun's coming up
I'm riding with Lady Luck
Freeways, cars and trucks
Stars beginning to fade
As I lead the parade
Just a-wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
Oh Lord, don't y'know, the feeling's getting stronger

Well, my time went so quickly
I went lickety-splitly
Out to my old '55
I pulled away slowly
Feeling so holy
Oh, God knows I was feeling alive

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