    I knew a man Bojangles
    Always danced with worn out shoes
    The silver hair, a ragged shirt
    And bare ragged paints
    The old soft shoe
    He jumps so high
    He jumps so high and
    Then he lightly touches down

    i met him in a New orleans cafè
    He was down and out


    I knew a man, Bojangles, and he danced 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
    so down and out.
    He looked at me to be the eyes of age,
    as he spoke right out.
    He talked of life, he talked of life. He laughed, clicked heels instead.

    Mister Bojangles
    Mister Bojangles
    Mister Bojangles,

    He danced for those at minstrel shows and county fairs
    throughout the South.
    He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and he
    traveled about.
    His dog up and died, dog up and died, after twentyyears he still grieved.

    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.
    He said, I drink a bit.
    He shook his head and as he shook his head I heard someone ask, please

    Mister Bojangles
    Mister Bojangles
    Mister Bojangles,
