Bad, Bad Leroy Brown & Other Favorites album at
Jim Croce's, "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown"
The Lyrics:
Well the south side of Chicago Is the baddest part of town And if you go down there You better just beware Of a man named Leroy Brown
I'm a little surprised that no one had yet posted this classic hit from the summer of 1973 from the late great Jim Croce (who died far too young). Of course from the opening verse the setting for this song about Leroy Brown, that women called "treetop lover" and the men just got out of the way from, is in Chicago (Illinois).
