Mr. Bojangles


I knew a man, Bojangles and he'd dance for you
-2  3 -2  3   -2  3 -2   3  -2    3    -2  -1*

In worn out shoes
 4  4   -3*  -3*

Silver hair, a ragged shirt, and baggy pants
 3 -2   3   -2  3  -2   3    -2  3  -2  -1*

He would do the old soft shoe
 4  -3*  4  -3*  4   -3*  -3*

He could jump so high, jump so high
 4  -3*   4   -5  -3*   3   -2  -1*

And then he'd lightly touch down
 1  -1*  -2    3  -2   -1*   -2



I met him in a cell in New Orleans, I was
-2  3 -2  3 -2  3   -2  3  -2   3  -2 -1*

I was down and out
4 -3*  4   -3* -3*

He looked to me to be the very eyes of age
-2   3    -2 3  -2  3 -2  3 -2   3  -2  -1*

As he spoke right out
4 -3*  4   -3* -3*

Talked of life, talked of life
  4    -5  -3*    4    3  -1*

Laughed and slapped his famous step
   3    -2     3     3  -2 -1*  -2



He said his name was Bojangles and he danced a lick
-2  3    -2   3   3  -2  3 -2   3  -2   3   -2  -1*

Right across the cell
  4   -3* 4  -3*  -3*

Grabbed his pants, take a better stance, jump up high
   3    -2    3      3 -2  3 -2    3      -2  3  -1*

That's when he clicked his heels, then he let go that laugh
  4     4  -3*   4      3   -3*    4   -3* 4  4   -5   -3*

Lord, lord, lord, he let go a laugh
  4    -3*  3 -2 -1* -1* -1* -2 3

Shake back his clothes all around
  3    3   -1*    3     3* -2 -2



That was Mister Bojangles,  Mister Bojangles
 4   -3*  4  4  -5 -3* 3     4  4  -5 -3* 3

Mister Bojangles,  The man could dance
 4  4  -5 -3* -2    1   1   -1*   -1*



Told me other times he worked in minstrel shows
 3   -2  3 -2   3   -2   3    -2  3  -2    -1*

Traveling throughout the south
 4 -3* 4   -3*  4    -3*  -3*

Spoke with tears of fifteen years and how his dog and he
  3    -2    3   -2  3  -2    3   -2   3  -2   3  -2 -1*

They would travel about
 4    -3*  -5* 5  3 -3*

But his dog up and died, the dog, just got old and died
 4  -3*  4  4  -5  -3*   -3*  4     3   3   3  -1*  -1*

After twenty years he still grieves
 3 -1* 3 -1*  3    -2  -1*    -2



He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks
-2  3  -2   3    3  -2  3 -2   3    -2  3 -2  -1*

For only drinks and tips
-3* 4 -3*  4     3   -3*

But most the time I spend behind these county bars
-2   3   -2   3  -2   3   -2  3   -2    3 -2  -1*

You see son, I drinks a bit
-3*  4   4  -3*  4    3 -3*

Then he shook his head, all the time when he shook his head
 4  -3*   4   -5  -3*    7  -6   -5*  -5* 5   -5*  -6   7

I could swear I heard someone say to me
3   3     3   3  -2    4 -3*   3  -2 -2



That's Mister Bojangles, Call him Mister Bojangles
  4     4  4  -5 -3* 3    4   -3*  4  4 -5* 5 -3* 3

Mister Bojangles, Come back and dance, dance, dance, dance
 4  4  -5 -3* -2   4   -3*  -2   -1*    -2     -3*   -2 -1*

Mister Bo----jangles,  Mister Bojangles,
4 -3* -5* -6  7 -6 7    7  7*  7 -5* -3*

Mister Bojangles,   Dance
-5 -5* -5 -3* -2    3 -2 -1*
