Intro: Gm7

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              C7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    F7                              Bb
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Gm7                 C7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       F7                          F                            Bb
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local


Gm7                  C7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
F7                    Bb
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Gm7             C7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   F7                        Bb
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Gm                   C7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   F7                       Bb
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Gm7                      C7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    F7                   Bb
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 

    Gm7                  C7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     F7                      Bb
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Gm7                 C7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          F7                   Bb
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 

    Gm7                C7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    F7       F             Bb
and Rocky collapsed in the corner. 
Interlude -x3-:

        Gm7            C7 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    F7                      Bb
and proceeded to lie on the table. 

He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            F7                              F            Bb
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 

    Gm7                    C7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
F7                    Bb
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Gm7                        C7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   F7                       Bb
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
Oh yeah, yeah
