Jerry Jeff Walker
Mr. Bojangles

I knew a man Bojangles and he'd dance for you
In worn out shoes
Silver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants
He did the old soft shoe
He jumped so high he jumped so high
Then he'd lightly touch 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 he talked of life
He laughed slapped his leg a step

He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick across the cell
He grabbed his pants a better stance then he jumped so high
He clicked his heels
He let go a laugh oh he let go a laugh
Shook back his clothes all around

Chorus:
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
Dance

He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs throughout the South
He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and him traveled about
His dog up and died he up and died
After twenty years he still grieves

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

Chorus


Mirror lyrics:

Chorus

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

After twenty years he still grieves
His dog up and died he up and died
He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and him traveled about
He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs throughout the South

Dance
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles

Chorus:

Shook back his clothes all around
He let go a laugh oh he let go a laugh
He clicked his heels
He grabbed his pants a better stance then he jumped so high
He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick across the cell

He laughed slapped his leg a step
He talked of life he talked of life
As he spoke right out
He looked to me to be the eyes of age
I was down and out
I met him in a cell in New Orleans

Then he'd lightly touch down
He jumped so high he jumped so high
He did the old soft shoe
Silver hair and ragged shirt and baggy pants
In worn out shoes
I knew a man Bojangles and he'd dance for you
