OriginEdit

The song is about a man from the South Side of Chicago who, due to his size and attitude, has a reputation as the "baddest man in the whole damn town." One day, in a bar, he makes a pass at a pretty, married woman named Doris, whose jealous husband proceeds to beat Leroy brutally in the ensuing fight. Croce based the song’s story on a friend he met in the Army who went AWOL and was later arrested when he returned to receive his paycheck.

EffectsEdit

Increases the strength of the wearer tenfold, but the wearer will slowly take on the personal of Leroy Brown in the form of buying fancy clothes and hitting on wives of jealous men. Outfit comes with a .32 caliber pistol in the pocket.
