Intro: Dm7

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              G7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    C7                              F
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Dm7                 G7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       C7                          C                            F
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local


Dm7                  G7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
C7                    F
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Dm7             G7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   C7                        F
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Dm                   G7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   C7                       F
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Dm7                      G7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    C7                   F
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 

    Dm7                  G7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     C7                      F
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Dm7                 G7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          C7                   F
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 

    Dm7                G7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    C7       C             F
and Rocky collapsed in the corner. 
Interlude -x3-:
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... Dm7  G7  C7  F

        Dm7            G7 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    C7                      F
and proceeded to lie on the table. 

He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            C7                              C            F
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 

    Dm7                    G7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
C7                    F
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Dm7                        G7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   C7                       F
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
Oh yeah, yeah
