Intro: Em7

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              A7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    D7                              G
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Em7                 A7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       D7                          D                            G
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local


Em7                  A7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
D7                    G
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Em7             A7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   D7                        G
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Em                   A7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   D7                       G
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Em7                      A7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    D7                   G
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 

    Em7                  A7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     D7                      G
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Em7                 A7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          D7                   G
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 

    Em7                A7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    D7       D             G
and Rocky collapsed in the corner.

        Em7            A7 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    D7                      G
and proceeded to lie on the table. 

He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            D7                              D            G
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 

    Em7                    A7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
D7                    G
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Em7                        A7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   D7                       G
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
Oh yeah, yeah
