The Hollies – Long Cool Woman
Verse 1:
E
Saturday night I was downtown
G A E
Working for the F. B.I.
E
Sitting in a nest of bad men
G A E
Whiskey bottles piling high
E
Bootlegging boozer on the West Side
G A E
Full of people who are doing wrong
E
Just about to call up the D. A. man
G A E
When I heard this woman sing a song

A
A pair of 45s made me open my eyes
B
My temperature started to rise
A
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
G E
Just-a 5'9, beautiful, tall
A
With just one look I was a bad mess
G E
'Cause that long cool woman had it all

Verse 2:
E
I saw her head up the table
G A E
Well, a tall walking big black cat
E
When Charlie said I hope that you're able boy
G A E
Well, I'm telling you she knows where it's at
E
Then suddenly we heard the sirens
G A E
And everybody started to run
E
A-jumping out of doors and tables
G A E
When I heard somebody shooting a gun

E
Well, the D.А. was pumping my left hand
G A E
And a-she was a-holding my right
E
Well I told her don't get scared
G
'Cause you're gonna be spared
A
I've gotta be forgiving if I wanna spend my living
A
With a long cool woman in a black dress
G E
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
A
Yeah, with just one look I was a bad mess
G E
Cause that long cool woman had it all

E
Had it all... {repeat to fade}
