Rocky Raccoon

(Lennon / Mc Cartney)


Intro Am7   
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     
 C/B                   Am7
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                    Dsus4(7)-D7      
Rocky Raccoon, checked into his room,      
  G7                    C    C/B      
Only to find Gideon's Bible.      
 Am7             Dsus4(7)-D7      
Rocky had come, equipped with a gun,      
     G7                        C     C/B      
To shoot off the legs of his rival     
      Am7               Dsus4(7)-D7      
His rival it seems, had broken his dreams,      
     G7                                   C    C/B     
By stealing the girl of his fancy      
     Am7                      Dsus4(7)-D7      
Her name was McGill, And she called herself Lil,      
      G7                              C       C/B     
But everyone knew her as Nancy      
 Am7                         Dsus4(7)-D7                        
Now she and her man, who called himself Dan,      
       G7                                 C             C/B  
Were in the next room at the hoedown     
Am7                       Dsus4(7)-D7       
Rocky burst in and grinning a grin,      
  G7                           C C/B 
He said "Danny boy, this is a showdown."     
  Am7                     Dsus4(7)-D7 
But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot,      
  G7                        C  C/B   
And Rocky collapsed in the corner.    
**Instrumental:  Am7 Dsus4(7)-D7 G7 C C/B 2X 
 Am7                          Dsus4(7)-D7      
Now the doctor came in, stinking of gin,      
        G7                    C    C/B      
And proceeded to lie on the table     
He said, "Rocky, you met your match,"      
But Rocky said, "Doc, it's only a scratch     
        G7                                            C   C/B   
And I'll be better, I'll be better, Doc, as soon as I am able."     
      Am7                    Dsus4(7)-D7   G7                C C/B            
Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room only to find Gideons Bible     
      Am7                    Dsus4(7)-D7      
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt      
       G7                  C    C/B     
To help with good Rocky's revival.
