[Verse 1]

   C       C/B              Am7/A         C/G   F           G
I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you,    in worn out shoes.
   C       C/B              Am7/A         C/G      F           G
With silver hair a ragged shirt and baggy pants,    He did the old soft shoe
F            C    E7         Am   Am7  D7                      G
He jumped so high, jumped so high,     Then he lightly touched down.

   C       C/B              Am7/A       C/G  F           G
I met him in a cell I was in New Orleans       I was down and out.
   C       C/B              Am7/A         C/G  F           G
He looked at me to be the eyes of age as         he spoke right out.
F              C    E7         Am   Am7     D7                      G
He talked of life, talked of life,        he laughed slapped his leg a step.


[Refrain]

C       C/B              Am7/A       C/G  F           G
He said his name, Bojangles, then he danced a lick, across the cell.
C       C/B              Am7/A       C/G  F           G 
He grabbed his pants a better stance oh he jumped up high,
F            C    E7         Am   Am7               D7                      
He clicked his heels, he let go a laugh, let go a laugh,
D7                                G
   Shook back his clothes all around.


[Chorus]

Am       G      Am         G      Am         G        C
Mister Bojangles, Mister Bojangles, Mister Bojangles, dance.

He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs Throughout the south.
C       C/B              Am7/A       C/G  F           G 
He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and he Traveled about.
F            C    E7         Am   Am7  
His dog up and died, up and died,
D7                            G
After twenty years he still grieved,


[Refrain]

C       C/B              Am7/A       C/G  F           G
He said, "I dance now at every chance in honky tonks For drinks and tips.
C       C/B              Am7/A       C/G  F           G 
But most of the I spend behind these county bars," He said, "I drinks a bit."
F            C    E7         Am   Am7  
He shook his head and he shook his head,
D7                      G
I heard someone ask him please,


[Chorus] (x2)

Am       G      Am         G      Am         G        C
