Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress) Lyrics

Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress) Song Lyrics


Saturday night I was down town
Working for the F.B.I.
Sitting in a nest of bad men
Whiskey bottles piling high
Boot legging 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 five nine
Beautiful
Tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
Cause that long cool woman had it all.

Saw her heading 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 a siren
And every body started to run
A jumping out of doors and tables
Well I heard somebody shooting a gun.

Well the D.A. was pumping my left hand
And a she a holding my right
And I told her don't get scared
Cause you're gonna be spared
I gotta be forgiven
If I want to spend my living with
A long cool woman in a black dress
Just a five nine
Beautiful
Tall
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



About

March, 29th 2017
The Hollies – rockers that made this sweet lyrical song with a guitar’s strings. There are a few songs (even of this widespread genre) that tell a real & interesting story. This is one of these. The story is as follows: a guy was in the underground bootleggers bar watching after all this mess to get himself prepared to collect more eye evidence to call the D.A. to arrest the crowd and starters of this booze traffic. Then he saw a magnificent girl and fell in love with her. Sirens broke out, people started running out, this fellow held the woman proposing to release her if she agrees to be with him.
