help you budding guitarists out.

[Intro] C  Em  Am  C  F  G  (Descending base line)

[Verse 1]
    C             Em              Am        F                G 
  I knew a man Bojangles and he danced for you in worn out shoes
    C          Em                         Am                 F    G
  with silver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants the old soft shoe
  F             Em             Am   F                        G 
  he jumped so high jumped so high then he lightly touched down 
  Am     G     Am     G     Am     G       C   
  Mr Bojangles Mr Bojangles Mr Bojangles Danced

[Verse 2]
  C         Em             Am                    F        G
  I met him in a cell down in New Orleans I was down and out
  C            Em             Am          F          G 
  he looked to be the eyes of age as he spoke right out
  F             Em                Am        F                   G
  he talked of life he talked of life he laughed and his leg a step
  Am     G    Am     G     Am     G        C
  Mr Bojanges Mr Bojangles Mr Bojangles Danced

[Verse 3]
  C        Em                          Am             F        G
  He said his name Bojangles then he danced a lick across the cell
  C               Em                               Am
  he grabbed his pants for a better stance oh he jumped so high 
        F          G 
  he clicked his heels
  F             Em            Am
  he let go a laugh let go a laugh
         F                      G
  shook back his clothes all around

[Verse 4]
  C              Em                          Am 
  He danced for those at minstal shows and county fairs
    F          G  
  across the south
  C            Em                     Am
  He spoke of tears of fifteen years how his dog and he
      F       G
  travelled about
   F              Em             Am
  his dog up and died he up and died 
           F                     G
  after twenty years he still greaves
  Am     G     Am     G     Am     G       C
  Mr Bojangles Mr Bojangles Mr Bojangles Danced

[Verse 5]
  C          Em                            Am
  He said I danced now at every chance in honky tonks
        F         G
  for drinks and tips 
  C                        Em                Am
  But most of the time I spend behind these county bars 
       F       G
  he drinks a bit 
  F             Em                Am      F                 G
  He shook his head he shook his head I heard someone ask please
  Am      G    Am     G     Am     G       C
  Mr Bojangles Mr Bogangles Mr Bojangles Danced


  ENJOY!!!!

You need a C and a D7/F#
C Em Am Am7/G D7 G
The C is after the F "he jumped so high" jumped so high then he lightly toughed down
