Well my time has come quickly, 
I go lickety-splitly down to my old '55
As 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 stayed a little longer,
Oh, Lord, 
Let me tell you that the feeling's getting stronger.

And it's six in the morning, 
Gave me no warning; 
I had to be on my way.
Well 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 that the feeling's getting stronger.

Well my time has come quickly, 
I go lickety-splitly down to my old '55
As 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, 
Freeways, 
Cars and trucks, 
Freeways, 
Cars and trucks
