Mr. Bojangles

	   D   F#m7   Bm7   D/A 
INTRO 
 
 
  D             F#m7            Bm7           D/A 
I knew a man, Bojangles, and he danced for you 
G   G/F#     A      (*)  
 In worn out shoes. 
     D              F#m7             Bm7         D/A 
With silver hair, a ragged shirt and baggy pants, 
G    G/F#     A       
 The old soft shoe. 
G             D/A     F#           Bm   Bm7 
 He jumped so high,      jumped so high, 
E                        Asus  A 
 Then he'd lightly touch down. 
 
 
 
Bbm      A 
   Mr. Bojangles, 
Bbm      A 
   Mr. Bojangles, 
Bbm      A       A7 
   Mr. Bojangles, 
D         (*) 
Dance. 
 
 
 
  D            F#m7          Bm7        D/A   
I met him in a cell in New Orleans, I was 
G   G/F#     A    (*) 
    Down and out. 
   D               F#m7   Bm7       D/A 
He looked to me to be the eyes of age 
G      G/F#        A   
 As he spoke right out. 
G             D/A    F#              Bm    Bm7 
 He talked of life,     he talked of life. 
E                              Asus   A  
 He laughed, slapped his leg instead. ( todo Bbm =Bm) o resto esta correto
 
 
   D                F#m7            Bm7          D/A  
He said his name, Bojangles, and he danced a lick 
G  G/F#      A     (*)          
  Across the cell. 
   D                    F#m7                  Bm7            D/A 
He grabbed his pants, a better stance, oh, he jumped so high, 
G    G/F#        A      
  He clicked his heels. 
G            D/A   F#           Bm     Bm7 
 He let go a laugh,    let go a laugh, 
E                            Asus    A 
 Shook back his clothes all around. 
 
 
Bbm      A     
   Mr. Bojangles, 
Bbm      A 
   Mr. Bojangles, 
Bbm      A       A7 
   Mr. Bojangles, 
D         (*) 
Dance. 
 
 
   D                   F#m7               Bm7         D/A 
He danced for those in minstrel shows and county fairs 
G  G/F#           A      (*) 
   Throughout the South. 
   D                   F#m7                  Bm7        D/A    
He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and him 
G   G/F#      A 
    Traveled about. 
G               D/A  F#         Bm   Bm7  
 His dog up and died,    up and died, 
E                            Asus     A 
 After twenty years he still grieves. 
 
 
   D                   F#m7            Bm7         D/A 
He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks 
G    G/F#       A      (*) 
 For drinks and tips, 
    D               F#m7               Bm7         D/A  
But most the time I spend behind these county bars. 
G         G/F#     A 
 'Cause I drinks a bit. 
G             D         F#              Bm   Bm7 
 He shook his head, and as he shook his head, 
E                         Asus    A  
 I heard someone ask him, please, 
 
 
Bbm      A    
   Mr. Bojangles, 
Bbm      A 
   Mr. Bojangles, 
Bbm      A 
   Mr. Bojangles, 
D 
Dance.
