Hollies – Long Cool Woman tab ver. 2

I haven't seen a good tab on this song yet so I wrote this up.  It's all legit.

Somehow, in a few places* the same note will be played, but one will sound more "twangy"
than the other. I really don't know how this is done.  (Maybe there is more than one
guitar, but I doubt it).

*Like here ^ *And here ^ Now play a simple E major chord, periodically putting your pinky on the A string, 4th fret, and lifting your ring finger (This is a great way to build up your pinky):

E Saturday night I was downtown G A E Working for the FBI E Sitting in a nest of bad men G A E Whisky 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 singing a song A A pair of 45's made me open my eyes B My temperature started to rise B A She was a long cool woman in a black dress A G E Just a 5'9, beautiful tall A With just one look I was a bad mess A G E 'cos that long cool woman had it all

Repeat the E, G, A over all the rest of the lyrics: I saw her headin' 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 the sirens And everybody started to run A jumping out of doors and tables Well I heard somebody shooting a gun Well the da was pumping my left hand And then she was a-holding my right Well I told her don't get scared 'cos you're gonna be spared Well 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 tall Well, with just one look I was a bad mess 'cos that long cool woman had it all Had it all
