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.

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.

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.

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 ol' fifty-five.
As I pulled away slowly feelin' so holy
God knows I was feelin' alive.

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.
