Eagles Ol' 55 Lyrics

Last updated: 02/09/2007 10:00:00 AM

Well, my time went so quickly
I went lickety-splitly out to my old fifty-five
As I pulled away slowly, feelin' so holy,
God knows I was feelin' alive
And now the sun's comin' up
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
Freeway cars and trucks

Stars beginning to fade, and I lead the parade
Just a wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
Lord, don't you know the feelin's gettin' stronger

Six in the morning, gave me no warnin'
I had to be on my way
Now the cars are all passin' me,
Trucks are all flashin' me
I'm headed home from your place

And now the sun's comin' up
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
Freeway cars and trucks

Stars beginning to fade, and I lead the parade
Just a wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
Lord, don't you know, the feelin's gettin' stronger

Well, my time went too quickly
I went lickety-splitly out to my old fifty-five
As I pulled away slowly, feelin' so holy,
God knows I was feelin' alive
And now the sun's comin' up, yes it is
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
Freeway cars and trucks
Freeway cars and trucks,
Ridin' with Lady Luck
Freeway cars and trucks,
Ridin' with Lady Luck
Freeway cars and trucks
Ridin' with Lady Luck...

great song | Reviewer: mazin | 6/2/2007

that's a tom waits classic, but the eagles perform it in a much lovely way! and oh they see when my time went so quickly "not too"

A Matter Of Spelling | Reviewer: Terry Edwards | 2/9/2007

A small thing, really, but in the stanza that begins "Well, my time went too quickly...." you misspell the word 'too', using only one 'o'. Aside from that little matter, I appreciate your efforts in putting these lyrics out there for me to use and enjoy. Thank you. Terry
