Intro: Bbm7

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              Eb7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    Ab7                              Db
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Bbm7                 Eb7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       Ab7                          Ab                            Db
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local


Bbm7                  Eb7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
Ab7                    Db
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Bbm7             Eb7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   Ab7                        Db
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Bbm                   Eb7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   Ab7                       Db
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Bbm7                      Eb7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    Ab7                   Db
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 

    Bbm7                  Eb7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     Ab7                      Db
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Bbm7                 Eb7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          Ab7                   Db
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 

    Bbm7                Eb7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    Ab7       Ab             Db
and Rocky collapsed in the corner.

        Bbm7            Eb7 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    Ab7                      Db
and proceeded to lie on the table. 

He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            Ab7                              Ab            Db
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 

    Bbm7                    Eb7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
Ab7                    Db
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Bbm7                        Eb7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   Ab7                       Db
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
Oh yeah, yeah
