Intro:  
[C]  
[G7] 

Well the  
[C] South side of Chicago, is the  
[D7] baddest part of town  

And if you  
[E7] go down there, you better  
[F] just beware  

Of a  
[G7] man named Leroy  
[C] Brown  

Now  
[C] Leroy more than trouble, you see he  
[D7] stand 'bout six foot four  

All the  
[E7] downtown ladies call him  
[F] “Treetop Lover” All the  
[G7] men just call him  
[C] “Sir” 

Chorus: 

And he's  
[C] bad, bad Leroy Brown  

The  
[D7] baddest man in the whole damned town  

[E7] Badder than old King  
[F] Kong  

And  
[G7] meaner than a junkyard  
[C] dog 

Now  
[C] Leroy, he a gambler, and he  
[D7] like his fancy clothes  

And he  
[E7] like to wave his  
[F] diamond rings in front of  
[G7] everybody's  
[C] nose  

He got a  
[C] custom Continental, he got an  
[D7] Eldorado too  

He got a  
[E7] 32 gun in his  
[F] pocket for fun  

He got a  
[G7] razor in his  
[C] shoe 

Chorus 

Well  
[C] Friday 'bout a week ago,  
[D7] Leroy shootin' dice  

And at the  
[E7] edge of the bar sat a  
[F] girl named Doris and  

[G7] oo that girl looked  
[C] nice  
[C]  

Well he  
[C] cast his eyes upon her, and the  
[D7] trouble soon began  

Cause  
[E7] Leroy Brown learned a  
[F] lesson ‘bout messin'  

With the  
[G7] wife of a jealous  
[C] man 

Chorus 

Well the  
[C] two men took to fighting  

And when they  
[D7] pulled them from the floor  

[E7] Leroy looked like a  
[F] jigsaw puzzle  

With a  
[G7] couple of pieces  
[C] gone 

Chorus 

Yeah, you were  
[E7] badder than old King  
[F] Kong, 

and  
[G7] meaner than a  
[F] junkyard  
[C] dog
