Mr Bojangles Tab

   
MR BOJANGLES
as played live with Robbie Williams

This is the complete tab of Mr Bojangles as performed at
the 'Sinatra'-concert of Robbie Williams. It is not extremely
difficult and I'm quite sure this is pretty much like it 
is played. It sounds quite nice this way, listen to the song
for the right rythm (althoug it's tabbed more or less with
the right timing).

Good luck and please send me an email if you tried this tab,
that way I'll know if this tab reaches anybody, and wasn't
made in vain...
Thanks!

The next two verses go the same:

He told me of the time he worked with
Minstrel shows travelling
Throughout the south
He spoke with tears of fifteen years
How his dog and he
They would travel about.
But his dog up and died
He up and died
And after twenty years he still grieved

He said "I dance now
At every chance in the Honky Tonks
For my drinks and tips
But most the time I spend
Behind these country bars
You see on I drinks a bit"
Then he shook his head
Oh lord when he shook his head
I could swear I heard someone say please
