Song Author Jim Croce Lyrics by: Jim Croce Performer: Jim Croce Submitted by: gilsi
[G]    [D7]    
Well, the [G]south side of Chicago
Is the [A7]baddest part of town.
And if you [B7]go down there
You better [C]just beware
of a [D7]man name of [C]Leroy [G]Brown. [D7]    
Now, [G]Leroy 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 [C]call him "[G]sir." [D7]    

And he's [G]bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The [A7]baddest man in the whole damn town.
[B7]Badder than old King [C]Kong
And [D7]meaner than a [C]junkyard [G]dog. [D7]    

Now, [G]Leroy, he a gambler,
and he [A7]like his fancy clothes.
And he [B7]like to wave [C]diamond rings
in front of [D7]every[C]body's [G]nose [D7]    
He got a [G]custom Continental.
He got an [A7]Eldorado too.
He got a [B7]thirty-two gun in his [C]pocket for fun.
He got a [D7]razor [C]in his [G]shoe. [D7]    

And he's [G]bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The [A7]baddest man in the whole damn town.
[B7]Badder than old King [C]Kong
And [D7]meaner than a [C]junkyard [G]dog. [D7]    

Well, [G]Friday 'bout a week ago,
[A7]Leroy's shootin' dice.
And at the [B7]edge of the bar sat a [C]girl name of Doris
and [D7]oh, that [C]girl look [G]nice [D7]    
Well, he [G]cast his eyes upon her
and the [A7]trouble soon began.
And [B7]Leroy Brown, he learned a [C]lesson 'bout messin'
with the [D7]wife of a [C]jealous [G]man [D7]    

And he's [G]bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The [A7]baddest man in the whole damn town.
[B7]Badder than old King [C]Kong
And [D7]meaner than a [C]junkyard [G]dog. [D7]    

Well, the [G]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 [C]pieces [G]gone.[D7]    

And he's [G]bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The [A7]baddest man in the whole damn town.
[B7]Badder than old King [C]Kong
And [D7]meaner than a [C]junkyard [G]dog. [D7]    

And he's [G]bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The [A7]baddest man in the whole damn town.
[B7]Badder than old King [C]Kong
And [D7]meaner than a [C]junkyard [G]dog.

[B7]Badder than old King [C]Kong
And [D7]meaner than a [C]junkyard [G]dog.


Well, the south side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town.
And if you go down there
You better just beware
of a man name of Leroy Brown.
Now, Leroy more than trouble,
You see he stand about 'bout six foot four.
All the downtown ladies call him "treetop lover."
All the men just call him "sir."

And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The baddest man in the whole damn town.
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog.

Now, Leroy, he a gambler,
and he like his fancy clothes.
And he like 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.

And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The baddest man in the whole damn town.
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog.

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

And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The baddest man in the whole damn town.
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog.

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.

And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The baddest man in the whole damn town.
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog.

And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
The baddest man in the whole damn town.
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog.

Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog.
