BRING BACK THAT LEROY BROWN
(Freddie Mercury/Queen.  From the albumn _Sheer Heart Attack_.)

     Brian actually plays this on an ukele banjo.  This is only
an approximate transcription for guitar.  Gotta play it in that
fast, Dixie style.  (Or is it Charleston?  Anyways....)  The
*really* tough part, where  you'll need the most practice, is the
C, B7, Bb7, A7, Dm7, C#dim, G7, C, G7+5 run.  (Whoosh!)  Once you
can play that, the rest of the song is a cinch.


Chords:   G7+5 = xx1001, G#dim = xx0101,
          C/E = xx2010,
          1dim = xx1212, 2dim = xx2323  (don't know the names,
                but they're diminished chords)

Refrain:
C     G7    C     G7          C         G7    C       G7+5
Bring back, bring back, bring back that Leroy Brown - Yeah!
Bring back, bring back, gotta ring that Leroy Brown - Yeah!

Verse:
C                      G+            C         1dim   Am
Bet your bottom dollar bill you're a playboy - yeah,  yeah
C                 F      G7     C     C  Dm7  1dim   C/E
Daddy cool with a ninety dollar smile (oooh------------)
Am                   G#dim             Am                   C#dim
Took my money out of gratitude, and he git right out of town
              C         B7         Bb7       A7
Well, I gotta getty up, steady up, shoot him down
      Dm7      1dim  G7  C   G7+5
Gotta hit that lat - i - tude babe.


Big bad Leroy Brown, he got no common sense - no, no
Got no brains but he sure got a lot of style
Can't stand no more in this here jail
I gotta rid myself of this sentence
Gotta get out of the heat, get into the shade
gotta get me there dead or alive, babe!

C
Woo-woo, big bad Leroy, woo-ooo
                       Am  E7     Am  Am  2dim  G7  G7  C  G7+5
Woo-woo, big bad Leroy  -  Brown!
C                    G7                 C
Big Momma Lula Belle, she had a nervous breakdown
 E7/G#   Am
(nervous breakdown)
C                 G7           C   Em/B  Am
Leroy's taken her honey-chile away
        F              Am             Dm7            Am
But she met him at the station,  put a shotgun to his head
      Dm            F     B7               G7
And unless I be mistaken, this is what she said:

C                                     (C)  2dim  Am
Big bad, big boy, big bad Leroy Brown,
G7                       C    G7
I'm gonna get that cutie pie

Bring back, bring back, bring back that Leroy Brown - Yeah!

C                G7              C       2dim  Am
Big bad caused a mighty fine sensation - yeah yeah
         C              G7          C
Gone and got himself elected president
    Dm7   1dim  C/E  F            A7  D7  G7
(we want) Le  - roy for president
C
Next time, you gotta hit a bitty baddy weather
(C)
This time, like a shimmy shammy leather
       Dm7      Am
He's a big boy, bad boy, Leroy
  C          G/B       Am      1dim
I don't care where you get him from
C                      B7      C    G7   C
Bring that Leroy Brown back  - want him back.
