Shady Rest

Oh she was twenty-one she liked to have her fun and she was restless
And I met her through a friend just one look then I knew I was helpless
And there beside the highway underneath the trees
There were fifteen cozy rooms and a coke machine
And the summer nights were warm
We found a home away from home at Shady Rest

They said she married well I read all they had to tell in the papers
And I thought she had it all till she gave me a call three weeks later
And there beside the highway underneath the trees
There were fifteen cozy rooms and fourteen vacancies
And the autumn nights were cool
We found a home away from home at Shady Rest

Our love was somehow special our love was somehow blessed
Through the years it never faltered down at Shady Rest
Now she's thirty-one with three kids at home and a husband waiting
And I got kids of my own but I spent my time at home anticipating
And there beside the highway underneath the trees
We spend two nights a week in good old number three
And the winter nights are cold
We found a home away from home at Shady Rest

(Shady Rest Shady Rest) stay a little longer
(Shady Rest Shady Rest) please don't go
Shady Rest Shady Rest) honey don't worry
(Shady Rest Shady Rest) nobody's gonna know
(Shady Rest Shady Rest)
