Rocky Raccoon
John Lennon and Paul McCartney (1968)

(Spoken:)
[Am7]Now somewhere in the Black Mountain hills of [D7]Dakota
there lived a young boy named Rocky Rac[G7]coon
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
[C]Hit young Rocky in the eye
[C/B]Rocky didn't like that,
[Am7]he said I'm gonna get that boy [D7]
So one d[G7]ay he walked into town
and booked himself a r[C]oom in a local s[C/B]aloon

(Sing:)
[Am7]Rocky Raccoon, checked i[D7]nto his room,
o[G7]nly to find Gideon's Bi[C]ble. [C/B]
[Am7]Rocky had come, e[D7]quipped with a gun,
to s[G7]hoot off the legs of his ri[C]val [C/B]
His ri[Am7]val it seems, had b[D7]roken his dreams,
by s[G7]tealing the girl of his fan[C]cy [C/B]
Her n[Am7]ame was McGill, And she c[D7]alled herself Lil,
but e[G7]veryone knew her as N[C]ancy [C/B]

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,
and Rocky collapsed in the corner.

Am7 D7 G7 C C/B
(instrumental)

Now the doctor came in, stinking of gin, and proceeded to lie on the table
He said, "Rocky, you met your match,"
but Rocky said, "Doc, it's only a scratch
and I'll be better, I'll be better, Doc, as soon as I am able."

Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room only to find Gideons Bible
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt
to help with good Rocky's revival.
