Jim Croce - Life and Times

The Jim Croce Home Page

A singer/songwriter whose enormous pop success of the early
'70s was cut short by his death in a plane crash. A Philadelphia
native who had worked the coffeehouse circuit for almost ten
years when he was signed to ABC Records in 1971, Croce
had a warm singing voice that served him well on his comic
uptempo hits ("You Don't Mess Around with Jim," "Bad, Bad
Leroy Brown") as well as his sincere ballads ("Operator"). The
latter became predominant after his death, with "I Got a Name,"
"Time in a Bottle," and "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song,"
all of which were posthumous Top Ten hits

Jim Croce
Born: 1943 in Philadelphia, PA
Died: Sep 20, 1973 in Natchitoches, LA

Thanks for your help if you can find it!!!

Re: Hey Tomorrow

i've also been looking all over for Hey Tomorrow tablature, and have found nothing. but a few days ago i sat down and started playing around and i believe i have the chords for the intro, which i believe just repeats throughout the song except for the chorus, which i don't know. anyways here's the progression, i assume you can figure out the timing and whatnot.

C E F E F E FEF G

pretty basic, but i believe this is correct. if you figure out any more please let me know... hope this helps

chords for leroy brown

G
Well, the south side of Chicago
A7
Is the baddest part of town.
B7
And if you go down there
C D7 G
You better just beware of a man name of Leroy Brown.

Now, Leroy more than trouble,
A7
You see he stand about 'bout six foot four.
B7 C
All the downtown ladies call him "treetop lover."
D7 G
All the men just call him "sir."

Chorus: G
And he's bad, bad, Leroy Brown,
A7
The baddest man in the whole damn town.
B7 C
Badder than old King Kong
D C
And meaner than a junkyard dog.

Now, Leroy, he a gambler,
and he likes his fancy clothes.
And he likes to wave diamond rings
in front of everybody's nose.
He got a custom Continental.
He got an Eldorado too.
He got a thirty-two gun in his pocket for fun.
He got a razor in his shoe.

(Chorus)

Well, Friday 'bout a week ago,
Leroy's shootin' dice.
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl name of Doris
and oh, that girl look nice
Well, he cast his eyes upon her
and the trouble soon began.
And Leroy Brown, he learned a lesson 'bout messin'
with the wife of a jealous man

(Chorus)

G
Well, the two men took to fightin'
A7
And when they pulled them from the floor,
B7 C D7 G
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle with a couple of pieces gone.

Out Chorus: B7 C
Yes, you were badder than old King Kong
D C G
And meaner than a junkyard dog.

chords for photos and memories

Gmaj7 C Gmaj7 C
Photographs and memories, Christmas cards you sent to me
Am7 Bm Em Am7 D7
All that I have are these to remember you
Gmaj7 C Gmaj7 C
Memories that come at night take me to another time
Am7 Bm Em Am7 D7
Back to a happier day, when I called you mine

chorus
Gmaj7 C Gmaj7 C
But we sure had a good time when we started way back when
Gmaj7 C Bm F#m D7
Morning walks and bedroom talks, oh, how I loved you then

Summer skies and lullabies, nights we couldn't say goodbye,
And of all of the things that we knew, not a dream survived.
Photographs and memories, all the love you gave to me,
Somehow it just can't be true, that's all I've left of you.

chords for operator

[G]Opera[Bm]tor could you [C]help me place this cal[G]l.
[Am]See the number on the [D]matchbook is old and [Em]faded.[D]
[G]She's living in L[Bm].A., with my best[C] old ex-friend ray[G].
[Am]A guy she said she [D]knew well and sometimes h[Em]ated.[D]

{c:Chorus:}
[G]Isn't that the w[C]ay they say it g[G]oes. Let's fo[C]rget all t[D]hat,
and g[G]ive me the number if you[Am] can find it, [C]so [D]I can [Em]call
just t[D]o tell them I'm f[Em]ine and to sh[C]ow, I[D]'m overcome with [C]glow(?)
Learned to take it wel[C/B]l. I only wish my [Am]words could convince [G]myself
that it just wasn't r[D]eal. But that'[C]s not the way it feels.

Operator could you help me place this call. I can't read the number that you
just gave me. There's something in my eyes, you know it happens everytime I
think about a love that I thought would save me.

{c:Chorus}

Operator, you can forget about this call. There's no one there I really
wanted to talk to. Thank you for your time, you've been so much more than
kind, but you can keep the dime.

{c:Chorus}

chords for time in a bottle

Dm Dm(maj7) Dm7 Dm6
If I could save time in a bottle,
Gm6 A7
The first thing that I'd like to do
Dm Dm7 B- Gm7 Dm
Is to save every day 'till eternity passes away,
Gm A7
Just to spend them with you.

[Chorus]

If I could make days last forever,
If words could make wishes come true,
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again I would spend them with you.

[Chorus]

If I had a box just for wishes,
And dreams that had never come true,
The box would be empty except for the memory of
How they were answered by you.

[Chorus]

Chorus:

D Dmaj7
But there never seems to be enough time
D6 D G Gmaj7
To do the tings you want to do once you find them
Em7 A7 D Dmaj7
[1 bar] [3/4 bar] I've looked around enough to know
D6 D G
That you're the one I want to go through time with.
Gmaj7 Em7 A7
[1 bar] [1 bar] [1 bar]

On the last go 'round, play and hold Dm.
