After searching for this tab myself before, I found that 1 person had it down 
pretty well, but the only flaw was that he failed to mention that whenever he 
plays the G, and A7 chords, he does a shuffle. So, you have to play barre chords. 
When he plays the G, you switch your fingers down a string to a C barre chord in a 
shuffle rhythm, and when he plays the A7, you switch your fingers down to a D 
barre chord in a shuffle rhythm. So it will be G G C C G G C C, etc.

Verse 1
		G
	Well, the south side of Chicago
		A7
	is the baddest part of town.
		   B7
	And if you go down there
		    C		    D		     G
	you better just beware of a man named Leroy Brown.
		G
	Now, Leroy more than trouble,
		A7
	you see he stand about six foot four,
		B7			   C
	all the downtown ladies call him treetop lover,
		 D	           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 ol' King Kong,
	D		        C
	meaner than a junk yard dog.

Verse 2
		G
	Now, Leroy, he a gambler,
		A7
	and he likes his fancy clothes.
		B7		  C        
	And he likes to wave his diamond rings
		        D	   G
	in front of everybody's nose.
                 G
        He got a custom Continental
                  A7
        He got an El Dorado too.
                  B7             C
        He got a .32 gun and a pocket full o' fun
                  D             G
        He got a razor in his shoe.

Chorus	   G
	And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
	    A7
	the baddest man in the whole damn town.
	B7			C
	Badder than ol' King Kong,
	D		         C
	meaner than a junk yard dog.

Verse 3
              G
        Well, Friday about a week ago
                A7
        Leroy's shootin dice.
                   B7                     C
        And at the edge of the bar sat a girl named Doris
             D                  G
        and oh, that girl look nice
              G
        Well, he cast his eyes upon her
              A7
        and the trouble soon began.
              B7                         C
        And Leroy Brown, he learned a lesson about messin
                  D         G
        with the wife of a jealous man.

Chorus	   G
	And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
	    A7
	the baddest man in the whole damn town.
	B7			C
	Badder than ol' King Kong,
	D		         C
	meaner than a junk yard dog.

Verse 4
             G
       Well, the two men took to fightin
                     A7
       And when they pulled them form the floor,
       B7                  C          
       Leroy looked like jigsaw puzzle
              D               G
       with a couple a pieces gone.

Chorus	   G
	And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
	    A7
	the baddest man in the whole damn town.
	B7			C
	Badder than ol' King Kong,
	D		         C
	meaner than a junk yard dog.

Outro
      Yes, you were badder than old King Kong

      And meaner than a junkyard dog.

Not quite. Watch the Youtube video of Jim Croce playing this song on the Midnight Special. You can see that he just bar chords up the neck.
He goes from G, to A, to B, etc.
