[Verse 1]

A            Asus4 A
Time went so quickly,
       C#m      
I went lickety splitly
D               A 
out to my Ol'55
     A           Asus4 A
As I pulled away slowly
C#m             
feeling so holy
D                       E7
god knows I was feeling alive


[Chorus]

        A    C#m     D  D/E  E7
Now the suns comming up
    A           C#m   D   D/E  E7
I'm riding with lady luck
A        C#m      D      D/E E7
freeways cars and trucks
Bm      E          A
stars beginning to fade
Bm     E         A  
and I lead the parade
Bm     E               
and I wish that I could
F#m        
stay a little longer
B               E                E7     
ooh 'cause this fellings getting stronger


[Verse 2]
(same chords as verse 1)

Six in the mornin' 
gave me no warnin'
had to be on my way
now the cars are all passin' me
trucks are all flashin' me
'n I'm headed home from your place


Ver. 2

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]
(same chords as verse 1)

Six in the mornin' 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.


[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 1]

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


[Chorus]

            C     Em7    F  G  G7    C           Em7    F  G  G7
And now the sun's comin' up      I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
C       Em7      F       G G7    C           Em7    F  G  G7
Freeway cars and trucks,         Ridin' with Lady Luck
C       Em7      F       G G7    C           Em7    F  G  G7
Freeway cars and trucks,         Ridin' with Lady Luck

ok i must ask...do none of you play your version along with the song? the tom version is actually in F# not A or C. to give you an idea, the chord prgression for the intro and first half of the verse is F#, Bbm, B, F#.
