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


Gotta get out, out, out ..
