Am7  
Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
                     D7
There lived a young boy ,Named Rocky Raccoon
G7                                                    C
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
Em                              Am7          
Hit young Rocky in the eye Rocky didn‘t like that
                      D7 
He said I‘m gonna get that boy
           G7    
So one day he walked into town
                                             C      Em
Booked himself a room in the local saloon
Am7                  D7  
Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
  G7                           C G
Only to find Gideon‘s bible
Am7                    D7  
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
     G7                                C  Em
To shoot off the legs of his rival
       Am7                     D7 
His rival it seems had broken his dreams
       G7                            C  Em
By stealing the girl of his fancy
       Am7                              D7
Her name was Magil and she called herself Lil
        G7                            C  Em
But everyone knew her as Nancy
Am7                           D7  
Now she and her man who called himself Dan
         G7                                      C  Em
Were in the next room at the hoe down
Am7                       D7 
Rocky burst in and grinning a grin
      G7                                 C  Em
He said Danny boy this is a showdown
      Am7                       D7 
But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot
       G7                                 C Em
And Rocky collapsed in the corner, ah

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin
         G7                                C Em
And proceeded to lie on the table
             Am7                  
He said Rocky you met your match
                 D7
And Rocky said, doc it‘s only a scratch
                G7                                                   C     Em
And I‘ll be better I‘ll be better doc as soon as I am able
                Am7                          D7           
And now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room
  G7                           C  Em
Only to find Gideon‘s bible
Am7                                   D7
