    "Shady Lady" Lyrics

    Uriah Heep

    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
