[Chorus]

A7
A pair of 45s made me open my eyes
     G
My temperature started to rise
            E                    G
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
       A             E
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
                           E
With just one look I was a bad mess
            A                       E
'Cause that long cool woman had it all

E
Well I told her don't get scared
               G
'Cause you're gonna be spared
                   A
Well I'm gonna be forgiving
     G
If I wanna spend my living
       E                    G
With a long cool woman in a black dress
       A             E
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
                           G
With just one look I was a bad mess
             A                     E
'Cause that long cool woman had it all
