"Shady Lady"

 

Out from St. Louie, I wasn't choosy

I just wanted to get back on the road

I hitched in cars, and worked in bars

Lookin' for a place to lay down my load

I met a lady, a shady lady

And someone told her I was all on my own

She poured a beer and said "When I'm finished here

Hang around 'cause I'm taking you home



Don't worry I'll treat you all right

Don't worry you can stay all night"

And I thought it was any easy ride

But I didn't know where I was till I got inside



She said "Okay sonny, give me your money

And don't start any foolin' around"

I said "What?" I said "What

Don't you think you're turning me upside down"

She said "I don't care, I've been everywhere

And I've not been lookin' for you

But I'll take you in and give you a spin

You'll know some tricks by the time we get through"



Shady lady, you want it all your own way

Shady lady, you won't let go of your prey

Shady lady, eat me up and spit me out

But let's get started now I know what you're talkin' about



Now in the morning, as day was dawning

Shady asked me if I'd stay there awhile

I said "Stay? baby no way"

But I couldn't keep myself from a smile

I said "Now no bye-bye's, go in and dry your eyes

That ain't fittin' for a lady like you

Why not be smart, and give your life another start

But take care now whatever you do"



Shady lady I'm on my way

Shady lady we'll meet again one day

And don't worry 'cause when we do

I'm gonna make sure that there ain't very much left of you



I gotta get out! [repeat and fade w/vocal ad lib]
