Rocky Raccoon / The Beatles ~ lyrics and guitar chords
Rocky Raccoon

Am7 (x4)
        Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
                                   D                                             D7
            there lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon
    G                           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
            and booked himself a room in the local saloon

        Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
        Only to find Gideon's bible
        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 Magil 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 hoe down
        And Rocky burst in and grinning a grin
        He said, "Danny boy this is a showdown"

        But Daniel was hot and he drew first and shot
        And Rocky collapsed in the corner
                        *Interlude*   (verse, x2)

        Now the doctor came in stinking of gin
        And proceeded to lie on the table
        He said, "Rocky, you met your match"
            and Rocky said, "Doc, it's only a scratch
        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...
                          *Outro*   (verse (x2) end on C)
