Tom Waits Ol' 55

Tom Waits week continues with a classic cut from his 1973 debut, Closing Time, "Ol' 55"

All Music Guide says, "The lyrics are terrific – “Well my time went so quickly/I went lickedly spitly/Out to my ol’ 55” is the song’s opening, and it progresses into a most moving account of a man and his car as one can possibly imagine."
