Intro: Dbm7

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              Gb7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    B7                              E
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Dbm7                 Gb7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       B7                          B                            E
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local


Dbm7                  Gb7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
B7                    E
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Dbm7             Gb7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   B7                        E
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Dbm                   Gb7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   B7                       E
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Dbm7                      Gb7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    B7                   E
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 

    Dbm7                  Gb7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     B7                      E
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Dbm7                 Gb7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          B7                   E
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 

    Dbm7                Gb7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    B7       B             E
and Rocky collapsed in the corner.

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    B7                      E
and proceeded to lie on the table. 

He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            B7                              B            E
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 

    Dbm7                    Gb7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
B7                    E
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Dbm7                        Gb7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   B7                       E
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
Oh yeah, yeah
