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!
