	  		Intro: C 

    C            C/B            Am             Am/G 
I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you 
F                G 
  In worn out shoes 
 C             C/B              Am          Am/G 
Silver hair, ragged shirt and baggy pants 
F                 G 
  That old soft shoe 

F               C                 E     Am   Am/G 
  He jumped so high, he jumped so high. 
D7                         G 
 Then he lightly touched down 

Am         Em        Am     Em

 C            C/B            Am      Am/G 
I met him in a cell in New Orleans 

F                G 
I was down and out 

 C             C/B              Am      Am/G 
He looked to me to be the eye of age 

F                G 
as he spoke right out 


F               C                E    Am     Am/G 
He talked of life, he talked of life, 

D7                         G 
laughing slapped his leg stale 

Am    Em       Am    Em 
Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles,  

 C     C/B    Am    Am/G    F        G 
dance. 

 C             C/B              Am             Am/G 
He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick 

F                G 
all across the cell 

C                          C/B                 Am             Am/G 
He grabbed his pants for a better stance,oh he jumped so high 

F                G 
and he clicked up his heels 

F          C                E    Am   Am/G 
He let go laugh, he let go laugh, 

D7                         G 
shook back his clothes all around 

Am     Em      Am       Em 
Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles,  

 C     C/B    Am    Am/G    F    G 
dance, yeah, dance 

 C                    C/B                 Am           Am/G 
He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs 

F                G 
throughtout the south 

 C                     C/B         Am             Am/G 
He spoke with tears of 15 years of how his dog and him  

F                G 
just traveled about 

F               C               E   Am   Am/G 
His dog up and died, he up and died, 

D7                          G 
and after 20 years he still grieves 

Am    Em       Am    Em 
Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles,  

C     C/B    Am    Am/G    F        G

 C                      C/B             Am         Am/G 
He said "I dance now at every chance at honky-tonks 

F                G 
for drinks and tips 

 C                     C/B                Am         Am/G 
But most of the time I spend behind these county bars, 

F                G 
cause I drinks a bit" 

F               C                   E     Am   Am/G 
He shook his head, yes he shook his head, 

D7                         G 
I heard someone ask him, please? 

Am     Em      Am    Em 
Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles,
