Long Cool Woman
The Hollies Lyrics


Saturday night I was downtown
Working for the FBI
Sitting in a nest of bad men
Whiskey bottles piling high

Bootlegging boozer on the west side
Full of people who are doing wrong
Just about to call up the D.A. man
When I heard this woman singing a song

A pair of forty fives made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise

She was a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9" beautiful 'n' tall
Just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all

I saw her heading to the table
Well, a tall walking big black cat
Charlie said, I hope that you're able, boy
'Cause I'm telling you she knows where it's at

Well, suddenly we hear the sirens
And everybody started to run
Jumping under doors and tables
Well, I heard somebody shooting a gun

Well, the D.A. was pumping my left hand
She was holding my right
Well, I told her, don't get scared
'Cause you're gonna be spared
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 'n' tall
Well with just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all
Had it all, had it all, had it all
Had it all, had it all, had it all (she had it all)

DAMN FOOL WOMAN WITH NO FACE-MASK...(Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress) by The Hollies

Last Tues-day night I went down-town
Ho-pin' just to buy some clo-thes
San Fran-cis-co shops are shut-down
Ev-en all the bars are clo-sed

Bo-toxin' booz-er on the west coast
Was on T.V. with her Ken-te shaw-l
Dishin' out more dirt on the Or-ange Man
And warn-in' he was killin' us a-all

There was somthin' goin' on, in a lo-cal sal-on
I hap-pened to stumb-le, up-o-o-on

Here was this damn-fool wo-man with no face mask
Just actin' like it's nuthin' at a-ll
What the fuck, I was so in-censed
That this damn-fool wom-an had the ga-all

I saw her step-pin' thru the door-way
Fol-lowed by a dude with a mask
Shoulda' said, my God just how dare you, fraud?
But I knew it wasn't pru-dent to a-sk

Now sure e-nough we hear the fake news
And her minions, all start-in' to spin
Claim-in' it was just, a set-up
Hell, I heard Nan-cy is the real victim-m-m

Well, this Co-vid Nine-teen gives the Left-ists
The means to dis-solve all our rights
Hell, no won-der she don't care
'Cause, they some-how get spared
Yet I won't ever be forgiven if I try to earn a livin'

But this damn-fool wo-man with no face mask
Says that I have to for-feit it a-ll
While she goes pran-cin' like some prin-cess
God, this damn-fool wom-an has some ga-a-all

Had the gall!
Had the gall!
Had the gall!

That's some ga-ll
That's some ga-ll
That's some, gall..

Saturday night I was downtown
Working for the FBI
Sitting in a nest of bad men
Whiskey bottles piling high
Bootlegging boozer on the west side
Full of people who are doing wrong
Just about to call up the D.A. man
When I heard this woman singing a song
A pair of forty fives made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9" beautiful 'n' tall
Just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all
I saw her heading to the table
Well, a tall walking big black cat
Charlie said, I hope that you're able, boy
'Cause I'm telling you she knows where it's at
Well, suddenly we hear the sirens
And everybody started to run
Jumping under doors and tables
Well, I heard somebody shooting a gun
Well, the D.A. was pumping my left hand
She was holding my right
Well, I told her, don't get scared
'Cause you're gonna be spared
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 'n' tall
Well with just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all
Had it all, had it all, had it all
Had it all, had it all, had it all (she had it all)

Song makes me smile, from a massively depressed war veteran with PTSD, that's hard.

That opening riff is one one of the best in classic rock. Inspired many to pick up a guitar.
