Rocky Raccoon

(Lennon / Mc Cartney)

	   Spoken:   
  Am7                                             
 Now somewhere in the Black Mountain hills of Dakota   
                                      D7      
 There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon   
        G7                            C   
 And one day his woman ran off with another guy   
  C/B   
 Hit young Rocky in the eye   
 Am7    
 Rocky didn't like that,    
                            D7    
 He said I'm gonna get that boy    
        G7      
 So one day he walked into town     
                        C              Em    
 And booked himself a room in a local saloon   
 Sing:   
  Am7                    D7    
 Rocky Raccoon, checked into his room,    
   G7                    C    C/B    
 Only to find Gideon's Bible.    
  Am7             D7    
 Rocky had come, equipped with a gun,    
      G7                        C     C/B    
 To shoot off the legs of his rival   
        Am7               D7    
 His rival it seems, had broken his dreams,    
      G7                                   C    C/B   
 By stealing the girl of his fancy    
      Am7                      D7    
 Her name was McGill, And she called herself Lil,    
       G7                              C       C/B   
 But everyone knew her as Nancy    
  Am7                                  D7    
 Now she and her man, who called himself Dan,    
                                G7     
 Were in the next room at the hoedown   
             G7     
 Rocky burst in and grinning a grin,    
   C    
 He said "Danny boy, this is a showdown."   
   Em     
 But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot,    
   Am7                      D7    
 And Rocky collapsed in the corner.   
 **Instrumental:  Am7 D7 G7 C Em   
  Am7                            D7    
 Now the doctor came in, stinking of gin,    
    G7                    C    Em    
 And proceeded to lie on the table   
   Am7             D7    
 He said, "Rocky, you met your match,"    
      G7                        C     Em    
 But Rocky said, "Doc, it's only a scratch   
         Am7                          D7    
 And I'll be better, I'll be better, Doc, as soon as I am able."   
       G7                            C                 Em    
 Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room only to find Gideons Bible   
       Am7                      D7    
 Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt    
        G7                  C    Em   
 To help with good Rocky's revival.
