Mr Bojangles2-crd

Jerry Jeff Walker

 GBmEmCD7
I Knew a man, Bojangles and he'd dance for you ...in worn out shoes.

 GBmEmCD
Silver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants, ...the old soft shoe.

 CB7EmA7DD7
                                               -  
He jumped so high, jumped so high, then he'd lightly touch down.

 GBmEmCD7
I met him in a cell in New Orleans, I was down and out.

 GBmEmCD
Looked to me to be the eyes of age, the smoke ran out...

 CB7EmA7DD7
                                                          -  
He talked of life, he talked of life, laughed & clicked his heals & he stared

 GBmEmCD7
He said his name Bojangles and he danced a lick, across the south

 GBmEmCD7
He grabbed his pants & did his dance, He jumped so high, then he clicked his heals

 CB7EmA7DD7
                                                           - 
He let go and laughed, he let go and laughed, shook back his clothes all around

 EmD7EmD7EmD7CGBmEm
                                        --- 
Mr. Bojangles, .....Mr. Bojangles, .....Mr. Bojangles, ...dance.

 GBmEmCD7
He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs, throughout the South.

 GBmEmCD7
He spoke of tears of fifty years, how a dog and him, traveled about.

 CB7EmA7DD7
                                                       -  
The dog up and died ...he up and died, after 20 years he still grieves.

 GBmEmCD7
He said, "I danced at every chance in honky tonks, ...for drinks and tips.

 GBmEmCD
But most the time I spend behind these county bars, ...I drinks a bit.

 CB7EmA7D7
He shook his head & as he shook his head, I heard someone ask him "please"...

 EmD7EmD7EmD7CGBmEm
                                          --- 
Mr. Bojangles, .....Mr. Bojangles, .....Mr. Bojangles, ...dance.
