Bob Dylan - Mr Bojangles

This is what my friend Antje (who has no clue that I am posting it) and I 
got out of the great, greater, the greatest Bob Dylan version (from the 
"Dylan" album:


  C            Em
I knew a man Bojangles 
          Am          A7
And he'd dance for you
F             G   G7
 In worn out shoes


     C               Em
The silver hair, a  ragged shirt
     Am       A7
And baggy pants
F               G  G7
 The old soft shoe


F              G    E7         Am   A7
 He'd jump so high,  jump so high
D9                        G  G7
 Then he'd lightly touch down



Am       G      Am       G      Am       G       C Em Am C        
 Mr. Bojangles,  Mr. Bojangles,  Mr. Bojangles,   dance 


The rest of the song follows the same pattern. The lyrics I am posting 
are the original J.J. Walker lyrics, Dylan made a slight change here 
and there.


I met him in a cell in New Orleans
I was down and out

He looked to (Dylan: at) me to be the eyes of age
As he spoke right out

He talked of life, he talked of life
Then he laughed - slepped his leg a step

He said the name Bojangles then he danced a lick
'Cross the cell

He grabbed his pants,(Dylan: for) a better stance
Oh (Dylan: then) he jumped so high
He clicked his heels

He let go laugh, let go laugh
Shook back his cloth all around

Mr. Bojangles (3x)
Dance

He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
Throughout the south

Spoke with tears of 15 years
How his dog 'n him travelled about

His dog up and died, his dog up and died
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 (Dylan: For) I drinks a bit

He shook his head, and he shook his head
I heard someone ask "Please"

Mr. Bojangles (3x)
Dance
Dance

Enjoy!
