Bad, Bad Leroy Brown  Jim Croce

Well, the [G]South side of Chicago
Is the [A7]baddest part of town.
And if you [B7]go down there
You better j[C]ust beware of a [D7]man name of Leroy [G]Brown.
Now, Leroy's more than trouble,
You see he [A7]stand about 'bout six foot four.
All the [B7]downtown ladies call him "[C]Treetop Lover."
All the [D7]men just call him "[G]Sir."

And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The [A7]baddest man in the whole damn town.
[B7]Badder than old [C]King Kong
[D]Meaner than a [G]junkyard dog.

Now, Leroy, he's a gambler,
and he likes his fancy clothes.
And he likes to wave his diamond rings
in front of everybody's nose.
He got a custom Continental,
He got an Eldorado, too.
He got a thirty-two gun in his pocket for fun,
He got a razor in his shoe.


Well, Friday 'bout a week ago,
Leroy's shootin' dice.
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl name of Doris
and ooh, that girl looked nice
Well, he cast his eyes upon her
and the trouble soon began.
Y'see, Leroy Brown, he learned a lesson 'bout messin'
With the wife of a jealous man


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

And he's was bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The [A7]baddest man in the whole damn town.
[B7]Badder than old [C]King Kong
And [D]meaner than a [G]junkyard dog.

Yeah, he was [B7] badder than old [C]King Kong
And [D]meaner than a [C]junkyard [G]dog.

Not bad. Add D7's at the end of every verse and chorus.
A quick strum on G on the last word of each verse and chorus, then a change to D7 for the fill-in before going back to G for the first word of the next verse or chorus.
