Intro: Fm7

     Fm7                                           
Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              Bb7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    Eb7                              Ab
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Fm7                 Bb7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       Eb7                          Eb                            Ab
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local

saloon. 


Fm7                  Bb7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
Eb7                    Ab
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Fm7             Bb7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   Eb7                        Ab
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Fm                   Bb7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   Eb7                       Ab
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Fm7                      Bb7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    Eb7                   Ab
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 


    Fm7                  Bb7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     Eb7                      Ab
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Fm7                 Bb7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          Eb7                   Ab
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 


    Fm7                Bb7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    Eb7       Eb             Ab
and Rocky collapsed in the corner. 
 
Interlude -x3-:
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... Fm7  Bb7  Eb7  Ab


        Fm7            Bb7 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    Eb7                      Ab
and proceeded to lie on the table. 
 

          Fm7
He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
                  Bb7
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            Eb7                              Eb            Ab
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 


    Fm7                    Bb7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
Eb7                    Ab
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Fm7                        Bb7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   Eb7                       Ab
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
 
Oh yeah, yeah 

Outro:
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... Fm7  Bb7  Eb7  C

I like the chords of the song but the auto scroll function is frustrating. It will stop before the song ends and it makes it difficult to finish what I’m playing. Tried flipping it over on portrait mode but it still stops in the middle of the page.

I found that playing Am7 as G open, C middle finger 4th fret, E ring finger 5th fret, A pointer 3rd fret really made this song sing/sound close to the original instead of the fully open Am7 as suggested by the chord helper.
