intro 
----- 
 
Now somewhere in the black mountain hills out Dakota 
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon 
And one day his woman ran off with another guy 
Hit young Rocky in the eye... 
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy." 
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local
saloon. 
 
Rocky Racoon 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 McGill, 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. 
 
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... 
 
Now the doctor came in stinking of gin 
and proceeded to lie on the table. 
 
He said, "Rocky, you met your match." 
But Rocket 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 Gideon's bible. 
 
Gideon checked out, and he left it no doubt 
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
 
Oh yeah, yeah 
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da...

REPEAT FOR THE WHOLE SONG


Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
Hit young Rocky in the Rocky didn't like that
He said I'm gonna get that boy
So one day he walked into town
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
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
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.

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.
