[Lyrics]

I knew a man 'Bojangles'
And he'd dance for you
In worn out shoes 
With silver hair, a ragged shirt and baggy pants
He would do the old soft shoe
He would jump so high, jump so high
Then he 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

Mister Bojangles
Call him Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles come back and dance please

Come back and dance again Mr Bojangles

Basically fine, but but the transition to Bbmaj7 (Bb7M) should rather be C Dm C than C Dm C/E. Well done!
