Vielbesungener "Mr. Bojangels"

"Mr. Bojangles", ein Lied über einen alten Strassentänzer, den Walker laut "New York Times" in einer Ausnüchterungszelle kennengelernt hatte, nahm der Musiker erstmals 1968 auf. Der Song wurde danach auch von zahlreichen anderen Künstlern wie Sammy Davis Jr. und Bob Dylan gesungen.
