Ol' 55

Eagles

 1974
      This cover of a Tom Waits ballad is so great.  Frey and Henley share
vocals, the piano is great, and the chorus has a wonderful hook to it.
It's really easy to play, so have fun! A friend of mine named James
Wiebeck sent this to me a while back, and I checked it out and put it
up today. Thanks, James!

 C
Well my time went so quickly
 Em7
I went lickety splitly
 FF/GCG9
 Out to my old fifty-five
 C
 As I pulled away slowly
 Em7
 Feelin so Holy
 FF/GG7
God knows I was feelin alive
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Chorus:

 CEm7F
And now the sun's comin up
 CEm7F
I'm ridin' with lady luck
 CEm7F
 Freeway cars and trucks
 DmEm7CC/BAm
   Stars beginning to fade
 DmEm7CC/BAm
   And I lead the parade
 DmG7Am
   Just a-wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
 DFG7
   Lord, don't you know the feelin's gettin' stronger
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Next parts simile to above chords:

Six in the morning
Gave me no warning
I had to be on my way
Now the cars are all passin' me
Trucks are all flashin' me
I'm headin' home from your place
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------And now the sun's comin up

I'm ridin' with lady luck
Freeway cars and trucks
Stars beginning to fade
And I lead the parade
Just a-wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
Lord, don't you know the feelin's gettin' stronger
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Well my time went so quickly

I went lickety splitly
Out to my old fifty-five
As I pulled away slowly
Feelin' so Holy
God knows I was feelin' alive
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------This part just repeats	C    Em7    F  F/G  G7

And now the sun's comin up (yes it is)
I'm ridin' with lady luck
Freeway cars and trucks
Freeway cars and trucks
Ridin' with lady luck
Freeway cars and trucks
Ridin' with lady luck
Freeway cars and trucks
Ridin' with lady luck
Freeway cars and trucks
