Intro: Bm7

     Bm7                                           
Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              E7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    A7                              D
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Bm7                 E7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       A7                          A                            D
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local

saloon. 


Bm7                  E7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
A7                    D
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Bm7             E7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   A7                        D
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Bm                   E7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   A7                       D
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Bm7                      E7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    A7                   D
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 


    Bm7                  E7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     A7                      D
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Bm7                 E7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          A7                   D
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 


    Bm7                E7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    A7       A             D
and Rocky collapsed in the corner. 
 
Interlude -x3-:
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... Bm7  E7  A7  D


        Bm7            E7 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    A7                      D
and proceeded to lie on the table. 
 

          Bm7
He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
                  E7
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            A7                              A            D
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 


    Bm7                    E7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
A7                    D
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Bm7                        E7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   A7                       D
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
 
Oh yeah, yeah 

Outro:
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... Bm7  E7  A7  C

I like the chords of the song but the auto scroll function is frustrating. It will stop before the song ends and it makes it difficult to finish what I’m playing. Tried flipping it over on portrait mode but it still stops in the middle of the page.

I found that playing Am7 as G open, C middle finger 4th fret, E ring finger 5th fret, A pointer 3rd fret really made this song sing/sound close to the original instead of the fully open Am7 as suggested by the chord helper.
