Intro: Abm7

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              Db7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    Gb7                              B
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Abm7                 Db7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       Gb7                          Gb                            B
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local


Abm7                  Db7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
Gb7                    B
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Abm7             Db7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   Gb7                        B
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Abm                   Db7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   Gb7                       B
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Abm7                      Db7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    Gb7                   B
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 

    Abm7                  Db7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     Gb7                      B
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Abm7                 Db7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          Gb7                   B
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 

    Abm7                Db7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    Gb7       Gb             B
and Rocky collapsed in the corner. 
Interlude -x3-:

        Abm7            Db7 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    Gb7                      B
and proceeded to lie on the table. 

He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            Gb7                              Gb            B
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 

    Abm7                    Db7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
Gb7                    B
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Abm7                        Db7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   Gb7                       B
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
Oh yeah, yeah
