[E]Saturday night I was downtown
[G]Working for the [A]FB[E]I
[E]Sitting in a nest of bad men
[G]Whisky bottles [A]piling [E]high
[E]Bootlegging boozer on the west side
[G]Full of people [A]who are doing [E]wrong
[E]Just about to call up the D.A. man
[G]When I heard this woman [A]singing a [E]song

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

Repeat the E, G, A over all the rest of the lyrics:

I saw her headin' to the table
Well a tall walking big black cat
When charlie said I hope that you're able boy
Well I'm telling you she knows where it's at
Well suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
A jumping out of doors and tables
Well I heard somebody shooting a gun

Well the da was pumping my left hand
And then she was a-holding my right
Well I told her don't get scared
'cos you're gonna be spared
Well I've gotta be forgiven
If I wanna spend my living
With a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
Well, with just one look I was a bad mess
'cos that long cool woman had it all

Had it all
