Verse 1:

 E
        Saturday night I was downtown
 GAE
        Working for the F.B.I.
 E
        Sitting in a nest of bad men
 GAE
        Whiskey bottles piling high
 E
        Bootlegging boozer on the West Side
 GAE
        Full of people who are doing wrong
 E
        Just about to call up the D.A. man
 GAE
        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
 GE
        Just-a 5'9, beautiful, tall
 A
        With just one look I was a bad mess
 GE
        'Cause that long cool woman had it all

Verse 2:
 E
        I saw her head up the table

        Well, a tall walking big black cat
 E
        When Charlie said I hope that you're able boy
 GAE
        Well, I'm telling you she knows where it's at
 E
        Then suddenly we heard the sirens
 GAE
        And everybody started to run
 E
        A-jumping out of doors and tables
 GAE
        When I heard somebody shooting a gun
 E
        Well, the D.A. was pumping my left hand
 GAE
        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
 GE
        Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
 A
        Yeah, with just one look I was a bad mess
 GE
        'Cause that long cool woman had it all
