Mr Bojangles  Jim Croce



I [G]knew a man[Bm] Bojangles
Em (riff)Em7-Em-Em/F#-C
And he'll dance for you
[C]  In worn out sho[D]es
G Bm Em (riff)Em7-Em-Em/F#-C
With silver hair and ragged shirt baggy pants
[C]  He would do the old soft[D] shoe

Bridge
[C] He would jump s[Bm]o high
[B]Jump  so h[Em-Em7-A7]i-igh
[A7]  Then he lightly  touched[D] down

He told me of the time he worked with Minstrel shows
Travelling throughout the south
He spoke with tears of fifteen years
How his dog and he, they would travel about.
But his dog up and died, he up and died
And after twenty years he still grieved

Chorus
[Em] That's mister [D]Bojangles
[Em] Calling mister B[D]ojangles
[Em]Mister Boja[D]ngles come back and d[G]ance and d[Bm]ance
Em Riff
And dance please dance

He said "I dance now
At every chance in the Honky Tonks
For my drinks and tips
But most the time I spend
Behind these country bars
You see on I drinks a bit"
Then he shook his head
Oh lord when he shook his head
I could swear I heard someone say please

Chorus
[Em] That's mister [D]Bojangles
[Em] Calling mister B[D]ojangles
[Em]Mister Boja[D]ngles come back and d[G]ance and d[Bm]ance
Em Riff
And dance please dance
