Lick: ------- | C G/B Am ------- | ------- | ------- | x2 ---0-2- | -3----- |
C G/B Am (Lick)I knew a man Bojangles and he'd dance for you
F G (Lick)In worn out shoes
C G/B Am (Lick) With silver hair, a ragged shirt, and baggy pants
F G The old soft shoe
F Em Am He jumped so high, jumped so high
D7 G7 Then he lightly touched down
C G/B Am (Lick)I met him in a cell in New Orleans I was
F G (Lick)down and out
C G/B Am (Lick) He looked to me to be the eyes of age
F G (Lick) as he spoke right out
F Em Am D7He talked of life, talked of life, he laughed
G7 (Lick)clicked his heels and stepped
C G/B Am (Lick)He said his name "Bojangles" and he danced a lick
F G (Lick)across the cell
C G/B Am (Lick)He grabbed his pants and spread his stance,Oh he jumped so high
F G (Lick) and then he clicked his heels
F Em AmHe let go a laugh, let go a laugh
D7 G7 and shook back his clothes all around
Am G Am GMr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles
Am G C G/B Am (Lick) Mr. Bojangles, dance
He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs throughout the south He spoke through tears of 15 years how his dog and him traveled about The dog up and died, he up and died And 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 I drinks a bit He shook his head, and as he shook his head I heard someone ask him please Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles Mr. Bojangles, dance..
