Ol 55 Chords

   
Yes, this is my first tab. It's not made for playing along with the
recording. I just thought there should be a simple, singable,
pleasant-sounding alternative to some of the finger-twisters I've
seen for this tab. Hope you find it useful.

====================================================================

        G                            Bm
Well my time went so quickly, I went lickety-splitly
C         D         G
Out to my olí fifty-five
     G                   Bm
As I pulled away slowly, feelin' so holy
    C                     D   D7
God knows I was feeliní alive

CHORUS:
                 G     D      C   D7
     And now the sun's comin' up
         G           D    C     D7
     I'm ridin' with Lady Luck
     G        D         C      Bm
     Freeway, cars, and trucks 
     Am       D         G     Em
     Stars beginning to fade 
     Am     D           G     Em
     And I lead the parade
     Am     D           Em
     Just a-wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
     A7                               C                D7
     Oh Lord let me tell you that the feelin's gettin' stronger.

       G                   Bm
And at six in the mornin', gave me no warnin'
  C      D        G
I had to be on my way
             G                                Bm
Well thereís trucks all a-passin' me, and the lights all a-flashin'
    C                        D      D7
I'm on my way home from your place.

[CHORUS]

C         D         G
Out to my olí fifty-five

As I pulled away slowly, feelin' so holy
    C                     D   D7
God knows I was feeliní alive

            G     D      C    D7
And now the sun's comin' up
    G           D    C    D7
