Shady Lady

Out from St.Louis, 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 me I was al 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 alright
Don't worry you can stay all night
I thought it was an easy ride
But I didn't know where I was until 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
But I'll take you in and give you a spin
You'll know some tricks by the time we 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 bye-bye's, go in and dry your eyes
That ain't fitti' 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
