  C5            E5
I knew a man Bojangles 
          A5          A5
And he'd dance for you
F5             G5   G5
 In worn out shoes
     C5               E5
The silver hair, a  ragged shirt
     A5       A5
And baggy pants
F5               G5  G5
 The old soft shoe
F5              G5    E5         A5   A5
 He'd jump so high,  jump so high
D5                        G5  G5
 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

  That?s Mr. Bojangles,  Call him Mr. Bojangles,  Mr. Bojangles,   
               C5         E5        A5       C5 
Come back and dance and dance and dance me dance
A5       G5      A5       G5      A5       G5               
 Mr. Bojangles,  Mr. Bojangles,  Mr. Bojangles,    
               C5         E5        A5       C5 
Come back and dance and dance and dance me dance
