I kn[G]ew a man Bojan[Bm]gles and he'd [Em]dance for you[C]
In worn out [D7]shoes
[G]Silver hair and [Bm]ragged shirt and [Em]baggy pants[C]
He did the old soft [D]shoe[C]
He jumped so [B7]high he jumped so [Em]high[A7]
Then he'd lightly touch [D]dow[D7]n
I [G]met him in a [Bm]cell in [Em]New Orleans[C]
I was down and [D]out
He [G]looked to me to [Bm]be the [Em]eyes of age[C]
As he spoke right [D]out[C]
He talked of [B7]life he talked of [Em]life[A7]
He laughed slapped his leg a [D]ste[D7]p
He [G]said the name Bo[Bm]jangles and he [Em]danced a lick,[C] across the [D7]cell
He [G]grabbed his pants a [Bm]better stance then he [Em]jumped so high[C]
He clicked his [D7]heels
He [C]let go a [D7]laugh oh he let go a [Em]laugh[A7]
Shook back his clothes all a[D]roun[D7]d[Em]
