    Introduction

    Welcome to the fourth songbook from Worcester Ukulele Club the contents of this

    book are the songs that were submitted by members for inclusion in our play list

    during 2014. Thank you to everyone who contributed.

    If you feel you want to join us please contact the club at one of the following:

    www.worcester-uke-club.co.uk

    https://www.facebook.com/WorcesterUkuleleClub

    or come and join us on a Monday evening at Drummonds Bar in Worcester.

    Just a quick thought about playing notes

    [G] normally designates a full bar of that chord or a multiple of a full bar.

    An underlined chord like this [G] is played as a single strum.

    Bars shown like this [G/] or [G//] mean a 2 or 3 count on that particular

    chord rather than the full 4 count [in 4/4 time for example]

    [NC] denotes No Chord/dont play anything

    TACET denotes no playing (i.e. just sing until the next chord)

    Strikethrough denotes instrumental no singing

    The song sheets contained within this book are the author's own work and

    represent their interpretation of these songs. They are intended solely for private

    use, scholarship or research and not for financial gain in any form.

    The PDF version of this songbook is freely distributed in the true spirit of ukulele

    playing, is free for download, and may not be charged for.

    Cheers!

    From everyone at Worcester Ukulele Club

    Well the [G] south side of Chicago, is the [A7] baddest part of town

    And if you [B7] go down there, youd better [C] just beware,

    of a [D / ] man name of [C / ] Leroy [G / ] Brown [D7 / ]

    Now, [G] Leroy, more than trouble, you see he [A7] stand about six foot four

    All the [B7] downtown ladies call him [C] treetop lover,

    all the [D / ] men just [C / ] call him [G / ] sir [D7 / ]

    Chorus

    Now [G] Leroy, hes a gambler, and he [A7] likes his fancy clothes,

    And he [B7] likes to wave his [C] diamond rings

    In front of [D / ] every [C / ] bodys [G / ] nose [D7 / ]

    He got a [G] custom Continental, he got an [A7] Eldorado too

    He got a [B7] thirty-two gun in his [C] pocket for fun,

    hes got a [D / ] razor [C / ] in [G / ] his shoe [D7 / ]

    Well [G] Friday, 'bout a week ago, [A7] Leroys shootin dice

    And at the [B7] edge of the bar sat a [C] girl name of Doris,

    and [D / ] oh that [C / ] girl looked [G / ] nice [D7 / ]

    Well he [G] cast his eyes upon her, and the [A7] trouble soon began

    And [B7] Leroy Brown, he learned a [C] lesson

    'bout a messin' with the [D / ] wife of a [C / ] jealous [G / ] man [D7 / ]

    Chorus

    Well the [G] two men took to fightin, and when they [A7] pulled him from the floor

    [B7] Leroy looked like a [C] jigsaw puzzle

    with a [D / ] couple of [C / ] pieces [G / ] gone [D7 / ]

    Chorus and finish with

    And hes [G] bad, bad, Leroy Brown,

    [A7] Baddest man in the whole damn town,

    In a [G] neat little town they call Belfast

    Apprenticed to [C] trade I was [D] bound,

    And [G] many an hour of sweet [Em] happiness

    Have I [Am] spent in that [D] neat little [G] town.

    'Till a sad misfortune came over me,

    Which caused me to [C] stray from the [D] land.

    Far a[G]way from my friends and re[Em]lations,

    Be[Am]trayed by the [D] black velvet [G] band.

    Chorus:

    Her [G] eyes they shone like diamonds,

    I thought her the [C] queen of the [D] land,

    And her [G] hair hung over her [Em] shoulder,

    Tied [Am] up with a [D] black velvet [G] band.

    Verse 2:

    I [G] took a stroll down Broadway,

    Meaning not [C] long for to [D] stay,

    When [G] who should I meet but this [Em] pretty fair

    maid,

    Come a [Am] traipsing a[D]long the high[G]way.

    She was both fair and handsome,

    Her neck it was [C] just like a [D] swan's.

    And her [G] hair hung over her [Em] shoulder,

    Chorus

    Verse 3:

    I [G] took a stroll with this pretty fair maid,

    And a gentleman [C] passing us [D] by.

    Well, I [G] knew she meant the [Em] doing of him,

    By the [Am] look in her [D] roguish black [G] eye.

    A gold watch she took from his pocket,

    And placed it right [C] into my [D] hand,

    And the [G] very first thing that I [Em] said was:

    "Bad [Am] luck to the [D] black velvet [G] band"

    Chorus

    Verse 4:

    Be[G]fore the judge and the jury

    Next morning I [C] had to ap[D]pear.

    The [G] judge he says to me, "Young [Em] man,

    The [Am] case against [D] you is quite [G] clear.

    Ill give you seven years penal servitude

    To be spent far a[C]way from this [D] land,

    Far a[G]way from your friends and re[Em]lations,

    Be[Am]trayed by the [D] black velvet [G] band".

    Chorus

    Verse 5:

    So [G] come all you jolly young fellows

    A warning [C] take by [D] me

    When [G] you are out on the town me [Em] lads,

    Be[Am] ware of the [D] pretty col[G] leens

    For they feed you with strong drink, me boys,

    'til you are un[C]able to [D] stand

    And the [G] very first thing that you'll [Em] know

    Is you've [Am] landed in [D] Van Diemens [G] Land
