Intro:  C  Em  Am  A7  (4 x )
 
  C            Em
I knew a man Bojangles 
          Am          A7
And he'd dance for you
F             G   G7
 In worn out shoes
     C               Em
The silver hair, a  ragged shirt
     Am       A7
And baggy pants
F               G  G7
 The old soft shoe
F              G    E7         Am   A7
 He'd jump so high,  jump so high
D9                        G  G7
 Then he'd lightly touch down
 
He told me of the time he worked with

Minstrel shows travelling

Throughout the south

He spoke with tears of fifteen years

How his dog and he

They would travel about.

But his dog up and died

He up and died

And after twenty years he still grieved

He said "I dance now

At every chance in the Honky Tonks

For my drinks and tips

But most the time I spend

Behind these country bars

You see on I drinks a bit"

Then he shook his head

Oh lord when he shook his head

I could swear I heard someone say please

 
Am              G      Am                G      Am       G               
  That?s Mr. Bojangles,  Call him Mr. Bojangles,  Mr. Bojangles,   
               C         Em        Am       C 
Come back and dance and dance and dance me dance
Am       G      Am       G      Am       G               
 Mr. Bojangles,  Mr. Bojangles,  Mr. Bojangles,    
               C         Em        Am       C 
Come back and dance and dance and dance me dance
