This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker, not a traditional folk song.

Missing a verse:

He daced for those at minstrel shows
and county fairs through out the south
He spoke with tears of fiteen years
how his dog and he had traveled about.
His dog up and died, yes he up and died.
After twenty years he still grieved.
Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bogangles, Dance.

The song is by JJ Walker and is not a Trad. song

I use this good set of chords but without a capo.

For the verses, instead of C C/B Am F G, I add a G in between Am and F. It seems to complete the bass line as I remember it.
