G     Bm                            C        B    Am7 G    C B A G Am
Operator oh could you help me place this call
.                                                  D                                    Em      D C Bm Am G
You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded
G                          Bm                C     B   Am7 G       C     B A G Am
She’s living in L.A. with my best old ex-friend Ray
.                                  D7                                          Em       D C Bm Am G
A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

 

G                      C                          G
Isn’t that the way they say it goes
.                    C           D
But lets forget all that
.        G                                     Am
And give me the number if you can find it
.    C D   Em              Bm                                    Am
So I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
D                                 C                                              G
I’ve overcome the blow, I’ve learned to take it well
.                            Am                                              C
I only wish my words could just convince myself
.                                 D7            C                                    G
That it just wasn’t real, but that’s not the way it feels

 

G      Bm                            C       B   Am7    G   C   B A G Am
Operator oh could you help me place this call
.                                         D7                                 Em         D C Bm Am G
Cause I can’t read the number that you just gave me
G                                           Bm                         C     B       A       G
There’s something in my eye, you know it happens every time
Am                           D7                                         Em           D C Bm Am G
I think about the love that I thought would save me

G                      C                          G
Isn’t that the way they say it goes
.                    C           D
But lets forget all that
.        G                                     Am
And give me the number if you can find it
.    C D   Em              Bm                                    Am
So I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
D                                 C                                              G
I’ve overcome the blow, I’ve learned to take it well
.                            Am                                              C
I only wish my words could just convince myself
.                                 D7            C                                    G
That it just wasn’t real, but that’s not the way it feels

 

 






G      Bm                 C     B  Am7  G C      B A G Am
Operator let’s forget about this call
.                                     D7                             Em     D C Bm Am G
There’s no one there I really wanted to talk to
G                                  Bm
Thank you for your time,
Bm                             C    B      Am7   G C B A G
Cause you’ve been so much more than kind
Am                            D7   Em D C Bm Am G
You can keep the dime

G                      C                          G
Isn’t that the way they say it goes
.                    C           D
But lets forget all that
.        G                                     Am
And give me the number if you can find it
.    C D   Em              Bm                                    Am
So I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
D                                 C                                              G
I’ve overcome the blow, I’ve learned to take it well
.                            Am                                              C
I only wish my words could just convince myself
.                                 D7            C                                    G
That it just wasn’t real, but that’s not the way it feels

 

 

Jim Croce – Leroy Brown

Accordi e testo di Leroy Brown di Jim Croce
Pubblicato 1973
Tonalità originale G

 

.               G7
Well the South side of Chicago
.            A7
Is the baddest part of town
.                  B7                                        C7
And if you go down there you better just beware
.        D7                                G7
Of a man named Leroy Brown

Now Leroy more than trouble
You see he stand about six foot four
All the downtown ladies call him treetop lover
All the men just call him sir




CHORUS:
.             G7
And he bad, bad Leroy Brown
.        A7
The baddest man in the whole damned town
B7                                    C7
Badder than old King Kong
.        D7                                        G7
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy, he a gambler
And he like his fancy clothes
And he like to wave his diamond rings
In front of everybody’s nose

He got a custom Continental
He got an Eldorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe

(CHORUS)

Now Friday ‘bout a week ago
Leroy shootin’ dice
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl name Doris
And oo, that girl looked nice

Well he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
Leroy Brown learned a lesson ‘bout messin’
With the wife of a jealous man

(CHORUS)

Well the two men took to fighting
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone.




(CHORUS)
