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              Em     
 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,     
        G7                                 C             C/B 
 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 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.
