Dylan Bob – Mr Bojangles tab
C Em I knew a man Bojangles Am A7 And he'd dance for you F G G7 In worn out shoes C Em The silver hair, a ragged shirt Am A7 And baggy pants F G G7 The old soft shoe F G E7 Am A7 He'd jump so high, jump so high D9 G G7 Then he'd lightly touch down Am G Am G Am G C Em Am C Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles, dance The rest of the song follows the same pattern. The lyrics I am posting are the original J.J. Walker lyrics, Dylan made a slight change here and there. I met him in a cell in New Orleans I was down and out He looked to (Dylan: at) me to be the eyes of age As he spoke right out He talked of life, he talked of life Then he laughed - slepped his leg a step He said the name Bojangles then he danced a lick 'Cross the cell He grabbed his pants,(Dylan: for) a better stance Oh (Dylan: then) he jumped so high He clicked his heels He let go laugh, let go laugh Shook back his cloth all around Mr. Bojangles (3x) Dance He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs Throughout the south Spoke with tears of 15 years How his dog 'n him travelled about His dog up and died, his dog up and died After 20 years he still grieves He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks For drinks and tips But most the time I spend behind these county bars 'Cause (Dylan: For) I drinks a bit He shook his head, and he shook his head I heard someone ask "Please" Mr. Bojangles (3x) Dance Dance
