Bad, Bad Leroy Brown - Jim Croce



Intro bounces from G to C quickly.


 	 G                               A7
Well the south side of Chicago is the baddest part of town
            B7                       C                 D7               G
And if you go down there, you better just beware of a man named Leroy Brown.
                                            A7
Now Leroy’s more than trouble, you see he stands ‘bout six-foot four
           B7                       C                      D7                 G
And the downtown ladies call him “tree-top lover” all the men just call him “Sir”.


Chorus:
             G                        A7
And he’s bad, bad, Leroy Brown, the baddest man in the whole damned town
 B7                   C         D            C        G
Badder than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog.

   G                            A7
Now Leroy, he a gambler and he likes his fancy clothes
        B7               C                          D7         G
And he like to wave his diamond rings in front of everybody’s nose
                                        A7
He got a custom Continental he got a Eldorado too
          B7                    C                       D7            G
He got a thirty-two gun in his pocket for fun, he go a razor in his shoe


Chorus

    G                          A7
Well Friday ‘bout a week ago, Leroy shootin’ dice
            B7                    C                    D7                    G
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl named Doris and ooo, that girl looked nice
                                        A7
Well he cast his eyes upon her and the trouble soon began
     B7                    C                             D7                G
And Leroy Brown learned a lesson ‘bout messin’ with the wife of a jealous man


Chorus

     G                                            A7
Well, the two men took to fightin’ and when they pulled them from the floor
 B7                        C                    D7               G
Leroy Brown looked like a jigsaw puzzle with a couple of pieces gone.


Chorus

              B7                   C        D             C        G
Yes you were badder than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog.
