Answer: I'm afraid I'm stumped. I can't identify a weed without seeing it. Your description sounds like Joe Pye Weed or Purple Loosestrife or even houndstongue. Why not pull a few and take them to your local cooperative extension for positive identification? Helpful folks there can offer control strategies.
