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

(Guitar 2 plays mostly muted quarter-notes on low E)
(repeat main riff, 4X, as before)

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.A. 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

CODA (over main riff):
       E
Had it all...  (repeat to fade)
