So I was looking for a tab for this song and surprisingly most of them were pretty bad. Even the one that was "Unregistered" was close, but still not the way how Jim Croce played it. So after studying old Jim Croce performances, I got it down perfect. The only thing that people may still have trouble with this song is the beat and the hammer-ons and pull-offs while using the barre chords. But if you either listen to the song or watch Jim Croce perform it on youtube, then it should be childs play. So after you have made your final judgement on this tab, please rate and/or leave a comment.

B7 And if you go down there C7 D7* C7 G D7 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 C7 All the downtown ladies call him "treetop lover." D7* C7 G D7 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 C7 Badder than old King Kong D7* C7 G D7 And meaner than a junkyard dog. Verse 2: G Now, Leroy, he a gambler, A7 and he like his fancy clothes. B7 C7 And he like to wave diamond rings D7* C7 G D7 in front of everybody's nose G He got a custom Continental. A7 He got an Eldorado too. B7 C7 He got a thirty-two gun in his pocket for fun. D7* C7 G D7 He got a razor in his shoe. (Repeat Chorus) Verse 3: G Well, Friday 'bout a week ago, A7 Leroy's shootin' dice. B7 C7 And at the edge of the bar sat a girl name of Doris D7* C7 G D7 and oh, that girl look nice G Well, he cast his eyes upon her A7 and the trouble soon began. B7 C7 And Leroy Brown, he learned a lesson 'bout messin' D7* C7 G D7 with the wife of a jealous man (Repeat Chorus) Verse 4: G Well, the two men took to fightin' A7 And when they pulled them from the floor, B7 C7 D7* C7 G D7 Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle with a couple of pieces gone. (Repeat Chorus 2Xs) (At the end of the second chorus, don't play the D7. Just take the G chord into the outro.) Outro B7 C Yes, you were badder than old King Kong D7* C7 G And meaner than a junkyard dog. End on G And that should be that for Bad, Bad Leroy Brown by Jim Croce.
