Mr. Bojangles chords
Jerry Jeff Walker

    G             Bm            Em           C       
I knew a man Bojangles and he'd dance for you
In worn out shoes
G               Bm               Em         C
Silver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants
                    D   C
He did the old soft shoe
             B7                Em  A7
He jumped so high he jumped so high
                        D  D7
Then he'd lightly touch down

  G            Bm      Em         C 
I met him in a cell in New Orleans
I was down and out
   G               Bm     Em         C
He looked to me to be the eyes of age
                  D   C
As he spoke right out
             B7                Em  A7
He talked of life he talked of life
                             D  D7
He laughed slapped his leg a step

   G               Bm             Em            C           D7
He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick, across the cell
   G                   Bm                    Em            C
He grabbed his pants a better stance then he jumped so high
He clicked his heels
   C        D7                   Em   A7
He let go a laugh oh he let go a laugh
                            D   D7 Em
Shook back his clothes all around

      D      Em
Mr. Bojangles
      D      Em
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
G   Bm Em D
   G                   Bm                 Em           C                D7
He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs,  throughout the South
   G                   Bm                    Em          C           D7  C
He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and him,  traveled about
               B7             Em  A7
His dog up and died he up and died
                            D     D7
After twenty years he still grieves

   G                   Bm              Em          C                D7
He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks,  for drinks and tips
    G                  Bm                 Em         C
But most o' the time I spend behind these county bars
Hell I drinks a bit
   C         B7                       Em  A7
He shook his head and as he shook his head
                        D7    Em
I heard someone ask him please

      D      Em
Mr. Bojangles
      D      Em
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles

G   Bm Em D  G
