Rocky Raccoon

(Lennon / Mc Cartney)

 Now somewhere in the Black Mountain hills of Dakota 
 There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon 
        G7                            C 
 And one day his woman ran off with another guy 
 Hit young Rocky in the eye 
 Rocky didn't like that,  
 He said I'm gonna get that boy  
 So one day he walked into town   
                        C              C/B  
 And booked himself a room in a local saloon 
  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,  
 Were in the next room at the hoedown 
 Rocky burst in and grinning a grin,  
 He said "Danny boy, this is a showdown." 
 But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot,  
   Am7                      D7  
 And Rocky collapsed in the corner. 
 **Instrumental:  Am7 D7 G7 C C/B 
  Am7                            D7  
 Now the doctor came in, stinking of gin,  
    G7                    C    C/B  
 And proceeded to lie on the table 
   Am7             D7  
 He said, "Rocky, you met your match,"  
      G7                        C     C/B  
 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                 C/B  
 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    C/B  
 To help with good Rocky's revival.
