Hollies, The - Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress) Lyrics




Saturday night I was downtown
Working for the FBI
Sittin' 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 DA man
When I heard this woman sing a song

A pair of 45's 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, tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all

[Instrumental Interlude]

I saw her heading to the table
Like a tall walking big black cat
When Charlie said I hope that you're able boy
'Cause I'm telling you she knows where it's at
Then suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
A-jumping out of doors and tables
When I heard somebody shootin' a gun
Well the DA was pumping my left hand

And a-she was a-holding my right
Well I told her don't get scared
'Cause you're gonna be spared
I've gotta be forgivin' if I wanna spend my living
With a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
Yeah, with just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all
Had it all
Had it all

  9. Atmos

    For the record I'm fairly certain this Model is Charlotte Rampling,...around the 70's she was a Wow & considered as " It ". There were two kinds of English men back then,- those smitten with Charlotte, & those who'd never seen her !. & this Song + opening riff is still the coolest ever.

    Michael F Douglas

    I don’t recognize her in her youth as I never saw any of her old movies but I recognize her in her recent movies when she was older.

  10. Paula Cox

    My mom loved this! She used to sing it all the time. 😆

  11. Edison Mirandilla

    The beauty and looks of this Lady in a Black Dress is like Israeli ...the looks of an Arab and Latina women...

  44. [Psychonymphsia Ultravistous]

    Such great classic material. Just a good ol boy singing about his woman. And doing it with real heart. Couldn't be better.

  45. Milton Smith

    Loved this song when it was released those long years ago in the summer of 1972. It's closing in on 50 years old and it still sounds better than 98% of the trash we're tortured with today.

    Shoe Shooey

    Milton Smith I wouldn’t know because I’ll never listen to that crap...

  46. Silvano Baca

    Bad ass song

  47. Rikko K

    Sounds like a Ricken but I think it's a Tele.

    Martin King

    It's a Tele.

  48. LAMPROS311

    "Well you are dirty and sweet..."ooopsss, wrong song!!

  50. Dave Manning

    Yeah I've had one of those long cool women in a black dress. I can say it was worth everything I went through to get her. The one that got away! 5"9 beautiful tall. Wonder where she is tonight?
    MyDaMnWoRd 😬‼️

  51. james kelly

    Who is that hot babe!😁👅😋😍😍

  52. Justin Joyner

    I’m trying to listen to the song to play it on guitar but this long cool woman distracts me from hearing anything...

  53. Four Q Two

    I would love to fuck the hell out of that beautiful brunette! Damn!!!

  54. [Psychonymphsia Ultravistous]

    God, this song's got that rustic early 70s sound down perfectly. Also seems perfect for Vietnam. Why the hell don't I ever see this on the Vietnam Rock playlists???

  55. robin hood

    METAL BENT

    @Daniel Nestor Daniel, you do realize this picture was taken at least 35 to 40 years ago. That does not deny the fact that when this picture was taken she was a gorgeous model.

    Daniel Nestor

    No I didn't because the style of her clothing. I guess clothes and styles come back around. She's 60 something now.!.I can do that lmao.. nah I was just appreciating the pic. I think she's absolutely gorgeous and I don't comment often. I did on the other hollies video after seeing the other woman. Ive been telling my wife to get a black dress so I can stop listening to this damn song lol jk
