Neil Diamond chords for Mr bojangles

Guitar chords with lyrics

I know the song, but can't remember all the lyrics, so
another post there would be helpful. I'll just include
the first verse so you know where the changes are.

This is easy to play, and you can make it sound good by
adding little walks up and down on the bass notes.   This
is one of the first songs I started using bass notes on
when I taught myself to play, so I'm going spell out how to do
it for any beginners.

I am using C* and G* to denote changes in bass notes.
The progression for each is as follows:

C* -  A chord diagramC majorC bass note, strum A chord diagramC majorC a couple times,
      A chord diagramBB bass note, strum A chord diagramC majorC a couple times,
      A chord diagramA augmentedA bass note, strum A chord diagramC majorC a couple times,
      A chord diagramG+G bass note, A chord diagramA augmentedA bass note, A chord diagramBB bass note.  (no
      strumming when you walk back up)

G* -  Strum A chord diagramG+G a couple of times,
      A chord diagramG+G bass note, A chord diagramA augmentedA bass note, A chord diagramBB bass note.
      (note: next chord will be A chord diagramC majorC or Am, with a A chord diagramC majorC bass note,
       so it fits the progression.)
