C walk down--> C (B bass-open G string
I knew a man      Bojangles and he'd

Am, w/A Bass, then hit G bass -
dance for you - then hit G Bass in between the next lyric phrase
F walk up bass F#  G
In worn ------out shoes

Repeat Pattern

C walk down--> C (B bass-open G string
With silver hair, a ragged shirt, and
Am w/A Bass
baggy pants
F -->   F#   G
The old soft shoe
F                    C       [B bass, D 2nd string]
He jumped so high, jumped so 
Am   G Bass    D7         Dm                   G7
high -  - - - -Then he lightly touched down

I met him in a cell in New Orleans I was
down and out
He looked to me to be the eyes of age
as he spoke right out
He talked of life, talked of life, he laughed
clicked his heels and stepped

He said his name "Bojangles" and he danced a lick
across the cell
He grabbed his pants and spread his stance,
Oh he jumped so high and then he clicked his heels
He let go a laugh, let go a laugh
and shook back his clothes all around

(Now, play it nice and dramatic here)
Am  G             Am  G
Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles
Am  G  (walk bass up)    C
Mr. Bojangles - - - - - dance 
C walk down to Am , G Bass  F  G

He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
throughout the south
He spoke through tears of 15 years how his dog and him
traveled about
The dog up and died, he up and died
And after 20 years he still grieves

He said I dance now at every chance in honky tonks
for drinks and tips
But most the time I spend behind these county bars
'cause I drinks a bit
He shook his head, and as he shook his head
I heard someone ask him please - Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles Mr. Bojangles, dance..

You can bring some added drama by singing it using 'Please three times.  Also, play around in this spot with the 1st string,
3rd fret, and 2nd string 3rd fret  they'll sound good, inter playing with the G7

 D7         Dm                    G7      G7 add D 2nd string
I heard someone ask him please, Please
G (build)
P L E A S E ....  Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles - Mr. Bojangles, dance..
