MR. BOJANGLES ARROW 2132 By Lisa Lincoln Artist: The Nitty Gritty Band in 1971


Circle Left I knew a man, Bojangles and he danced for you
In worn out shoes

Left Allemande your Corner

DoSaDo at home

Allemande & Weave
He jumped so high...he jumped so high

Then he lightly touched down


Heads (Sides) Promenade Halfway around for me

Walk in Square Thru

Four hands around the floor and you'll DoSaDo

Swing Thru tonight

Boys Run Right

Couples Circulate in time

Chain Down the line...Keep her and Promenade

Mr. Bojangles...(Dance)


Circle Left
I met him in a cell in New Orleans, I was
Down and out

The Men Star Right one time around the ring I sing

Allemande Left & Weave The Ring
He talked of life
He talked of life
He laughed, clicked his heels and stepped


Sides Face Grand Square

He said I dance at every chance at Honky Tonks
For drinks and tips
But Most the time I spend behind these county bars
See I drink a bits
Allemande & Weave
He shook his head
As he shook his head
I heard someone say ask him please
Mr. Bojangles...

Mr. Bojangles
Mr. Bojangles...Dance
