"Ol' 55" as written by and Tom Waits....
Well, my time has come quickly
I go lickety-splitly
Down to my ol' '55
Well, I pulled away slowly
I was 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
Stars beginning to fade
And I lead the parade
Just a-wishing I'd stay a little longer
Oh, Lord, let me tell you
The feeling's getting stronger

And it's six in the morning
Gave me no warning
I had to be on my way
There's trucks all a-passing
And the lights all are flashing
I'm on my way home from the place

Well, the sun's coming up
I'm riding with Lady Luck
Freeways, cars and trucks
Stars beginning to fade
And I lead the parade
Just a-wishing I'd stayed a little longer
Oh, Lord, let me tell you
The feeling's getting stronger

My time has come quickly
I go lickety-splitly
Down to my ol' '55
As I pulled away slowly
I was feeling so holy
God knows, I was feeling alive, oh

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