Queen - Big bad leroy brown

#------------------------------------------------------------------------------# # 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------------)
