Mr. Bojangles Lyrics

I knew a man Bojangles, and he'd dance for you,
in worn out shoes.
With silver hair, a ragged shirt, and baggy pants,
the old soft shoe.
He jumped so high, jumped so 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

That was, Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
lord he could dance

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

That was, Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
lord he could dance
That was, Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles
lord he could dance
