Mr. Bojangles chords
Jerry Jeff Walker

    F             Am            Am           F       
I knew a man Bojangles and he'd dance for you
In worn out shoes
F               Am               Am         F
Silver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants
                    G   F
He did the old soft shoe
             E7                Am  D7
He jumped so high he jumped so high
                        G  G7
Then he'd lightly touch down

  F            Am      Am         F 
I met him in a cell in New Orleans
I was down and out
   F               Am     Am         F
He looked to me to be the eyes of age
                  G   F
As he spoke right out
             E7                Am  D7
He talked of life he talked of life
                             G  G7
He laughed slapped his leg a step

   F               Am             Am            F           G7
He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick, across the cell
   F                   Am                    Am            F
He grabbed his pants a better stance then he jumped so high
He clicked his heels
   F        G7                   Am   D7
He let go a laugh oh he let go a laugh
                            G   G7 Am
Shook back his clothes all around

      G      Am
Mr. Bojangles
      G      Am
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
F   Am Am G
   F                   Am                 Am           F                G7
He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs,  throughout the South
   F                   Am                    Am          F           G7  F
He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and him,  traveled about
               E7             Am  D7
His dog up and died he up and died
                            G     G7
After twenty years he still grieves

   F                   Am              Am          F                G7
He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks,  for drinks and tips
    F                  Am                 Am         F
But most o' the time I spend behind these county bars
Hell I drinks a bit
   F         E7                       Am  D7
He shook his head and as he shook his head
                        G7    Am
I heard someone ask him please

      G      Am
Mr. Bojangles
      G      Am
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles

F   Am Am G  F
