Intro: Ebm7

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
      D7sus                              Ab7
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon 
    Db7                              Gb
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 

Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
                           Ebm7                 Ab7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
       Db7                          Db                            Gb
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local


Ebm7                  Ab7 
Rocky Racoon checked into his room 
Db7                    Gb
only to find Gideon's Bible 
Ebm7             Ab7 
Rocky had come equipped with a gun 
   Db7                        Gb
to shoot off the legs of his rival. 
    Ebm                   Ab7 
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams 
   Db7                       Gb
by stealing the girl of his fancy 
    Ebm7                      Ab7 
Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil' 
    Db7                   Gb
But everyone knew her as Nancy. 

    Ebm7                  Ab7
Now she and her man -who called himself Dan- 
     Db7                      Gb
Were in the next room at the hoedown 
Ebm7                 Ab7
Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin, 
          Db7                   Gb
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 

    Ebm7                Ab7
But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot 
    Db7       Db             Gb
and Rocky collapsed in the corner. 
Interlude -x3-:

        Ebm7            Ab7 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
    Db7                      Gb
and proceeded to lie on the table. 

He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rockey said, "Doc, it's only a scratch. 
            Db7                              Db            Gb
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able." 

    Ebm7                    Ab7
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room 
Db7                    Gb
only to find Gideon's bible. 
Ebm7                        Ab7
Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt 
   Db7                       Gb
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
Oh yeah, yeah
