Ol'55

Saw some otherwise very good versions, but this song was screaming for a capo.  Enjoy.

---------------------------------------------------------

Capo first fret.

---------------

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

            F     Am   Bb  
And now the sun's comin' up 
    F           Am    Bb   
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
F       Am     Bb     
Freeway cars and trucks 
C                F  
Stars beginning to fade 
C                F   
And I lead the parade
C               Dm
Just a-wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
G                       C                
Lord don't you know the feelin's gettin' stronger.

F                  Am
Six in the mornin' gave me no warnin'
Bb                F
I had to be on my way.
        F                        Am
Now the cars are all passin' me, trucks are all flashin' me
    Bb                    C
I'm headed home from your place.

            F     Am     Bb
And now the sun's comin' up 
    F           Am   Bb
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
F       Am       Bb
Freeway cars and trucks
C                  F 
Stars beginning to fade
C              F 
And I lead the parade
C                  Dm
Just a-wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
G                       C
Lord don't you know the feelin's gettin' stronger.

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

            F     Am     Bb      
And now the sun's comin' up      
    F           Am   Bb  
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
F       Am       Bb
Freeway cars and trucks,         
F           Am   Bb
Ridin' with Lady Luck
F       Am       Bb
Freeway cars and trucks,         
F           Am   Bb
Ridin' with Lady Luck

Not a correction,'cos this sounds good anyway, but if you slide up from Bb to C
after 'the sun's comin' up' leading into the F 'I'm ridin' with etc.', it feels good and adds a little 'colour'.
Great tab in any case.
