Lyrics of 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 the old soft shoe
He jumped so high he jumped so high then he'd lightly touch down
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles dance
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 to life he talked to 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 he let go a laugh
Shook back his clothes all around
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister 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 twenty years he still grieves
He said I dance now at every chance
In honky-tonks for drinks and tips
But most of the time I spend behind these county bars 'cos I drinks a bit
He shook his head as he shook his head
I heard someone ask him please
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles dance
I knew a man Bojangles and he'd dance for you in worn out shoes
Silver hair and baggy pants and ragged shirt the old soft shoe
He jumped so high he jumped so high then he'd lightly touch down
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles dance
