Mr. Bojangles Misc. Traditional

yet another Neil Diamond (composer / singer) classic.
i thought jim croce made it but that might have been a cover :D
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.
The song is by JJ Walker and is not a Trad. song
I use this good set of chords but without a capo.
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
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.
This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker, not a traditional folk song.
