BAD, BAD LEROY BROWN                   (Jim Croce)

 

                                  G                          /            

         Well, the south side of Chicago

                      A7                           /

         Is the baddest part of town.

                              B7

         And if you go down there

                                 C                          D7                                    G

         You better just beware of a man name of Leroy Brown.

 

                      G

         Now, Leroy more than trouble,

                                A7

         You see he stand about 'bout six foot four.

                       B7                                            C

         All the downtown ladies call him "treetop lover."

                       D7                             G

         All the men just call him "sir."

 

Chorus:            G                   /

         And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,

                     A7                                /

         The baddest man in the whole damn town.

             B7                                   C

         Badder than old King Kong

                     D                                          G

         And meaner than a junkyard dog.

 

         Now, Leroy, he a gambler,

         and he likes his fancy clothes.

         And he likes to wave 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.

 

         (Chorus)

 

         Well, Friday 'bout a week ago,

         Leroy's shootin' dice.

         And at the edge of the bar sat a girl name of Doris

         and oh, that girl look nice

         Well, he cast his eyes upon her

         and the trouble soon began.

         And Leroy Brown, he learned a lesson 'bout messin'

         with the wife of a jealous man

 

         (Chorus)

         Well, the two men took to fightin'

         And when they pulled them from the floor,

         Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle with a couple of pieces gone.
