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 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
I thought it was any easy ride
But I didn't know where
I was until I got inside

She said, ok 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 looking 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 talking about

Now in the morning
As the 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
