Intro: Cm7

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              F7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    Bb7                              Eb
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Cm7                 F7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       Bb7                          Bb                            Eb
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local


Cm7                  F7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
Bb7                    Eb
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Cm7             F7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   Bb7                        Eb
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Cm                   F7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   Bb7                       Eb
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Cm7                      F7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    Bb7                   Eb
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 

    Cm7                  F7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     Bb7                      Eb
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Cm7                 F7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          Bb7                   Eb
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 

    Cm7                F7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    Bb7       Bb             Eb
and Rocky collapsed in the corner.

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    Bb7                      Eb
and proceeded to lie on the table. 

He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            Bb7                              Bb            Eb
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 

    Cm7                    F7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
Bb7                    Eb
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Cm7                        F7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   Bb7                       Eb
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
Oh yeah, yeah
