Mr. Bojangles chords
Jerry Jeff Walker

G Bm Em C I knew a man Bojangles and he'd dance for you
D7In worn out shoes
G Bm Em CSilver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants
D CHe did the old soft shoe
B7 Em A7He jumped so high he jumped so high
D D7Then he'd lightly touch down
G Bm Em C I met him in a cell in New Orleans
DI was down and out
G Bm Em CHe looked to me to be the eyes of age
D CAs he spoke right out
B7 Em A7He talked of life he talked of life
D D7He laughed slapped his leg a step
G Bm Em C D7He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick, across the cell
G Bm Em CHe grabbed his pants a better stance then he jumped so high
D7He clicked his heels
C D7 Em A7He let go a laugh oh he let go a laugh
D D7 EmShook back his clothes all around
D EmMr. Bojangles
D EmMr. Bojangles
DMr. Bojangles
G Bm Em DDance
G Bm Em C D7He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs, throughout the South
G Bm Em C D7 CHe spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and him, traveled about
B7 Em A7His dog up and died he up and died
D D7After twenty years he still grieves
G Bm Em C D7He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks, for drinks and tips
G Bm Em CBut most o' the time I spend behind these county bars
DHell I drinks a bit
C B7 Em A7He shook his head and as he shook his head
D7 EmI heard someone ask him please
D EmMr. Bojangles
D EmMr. Bojangles
DMr. Bojangles
G Bm Em D GDance
