  I [D#]knew a man Bo[D#maj7]jangles and he dan[Cm]ced for you,[D#7]
[G#]  In worn out [A#7]shoes,
  With [D#]silver hair, a r[D#maj7]agged shirt, and baggy[Cm] pants [D#7]
[G#]  He Would Do The old soft [A#7]shoe.
[G#]  He jumped so h[D#]igh, j[G7]umped so [Cm]high
[F9]  Then he'd lightly touch d[A#11]own.
I met him in a cell in New Orleans, I was,Well I Was down and out.
He looked to me to be the eyes of age as he spoke right out

He talked of life, talked of life, he laughed, slapped his leg a step

He said his name Was "Bojangles" then he danced a lick across the cell

He grabbed his pants, Took a better stance, o he jumped so hi, & he clicked his heels

He let go a laugh, let go a laugh, shook back his clothes all around
[A#7]  That Was[Cm] Mr Bo[A#]jangles,[Cm] Mr Bo[A#]jangles,[Cm] Mr Bo[A#]jangles. Lord He Could [D#]Dance.

(CHORUS)

He danced for those at minstrel shows & county fairs,

throughout the south

He spoke with tears of 15 years how his dog and him traveled about.

His dog up and died, up and died, after 20 years he still grieves.

(CHORUS)

He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks for My drinks and tips

But most the time I spend behind these county bars cause I drinks a bit

He shook his head, and as he shook his head I heard someone ask him please
