OLD 55

well the time went so quickly • I went lickety spittely
out to my old 55
as I pulled away slowly • feeling so holy
god knows I was feeling alive

six in the morning gave me no warning
I had to be on my way
and now the trucks are all passing me • cars are all flashing me
I'm heading home from your place

and the sun is coming up • I'm riding with lady luck
freeways : cars and trucks
stars beginning to fade and I lead the parade
just wishing I had stayed a little longer
lord knows the feeling's getting stronger

                                                       tom waits
