Intro: Am7

    Am7                                                         D7sus4                  D7
Now somewhere in the black mining hills of Dakota there lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon
G7                                   C           C/B                    Am7
 And one day his woman ran off with another guy, hit young Rocky in the eye,
                                      D7sus4              D7
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm gonna get that boy."
       G7                                                   C           C/B
So one day he walked into town booked himself a room in the local saloon

Am7                   D7sus4    D7  G7                    C     C/B
Rocky Raccoon checked into his room only to find Gideon's bible
Am7             D7sus4          D7    G7                         C     C/B
Rocky had come equipped with a gun to shoot off the legs of his rival
His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams by stealing the girl of his fancy
Her name was Magill and she called herself Lil but everyone knew her as Nancy
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

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin and proceeded to lie on the table
          Am7                                 D7sus4                   D7
He said, "Rocky you met your match" and 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
And now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room only to find Gideon's bible
Gideon checked out and he left it, no doubt, to help with good Rocky's revival. Oh yeah, yeah
