Rocky Raccoon

Lennon & McCartney

Now somewhere in the Black Mountain hills of Dakota
the-re lives a young boy named Rocky Raccoon-a
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 gonna get that boy
So one day he walked into town
Booked himself a room in the local saloon-a

A 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 Magill and she call'd her self Lil
But ev'ryone 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 show-down
But Daniel was hot he drew first and shot
And Rocky collapsed in the corner

(Do) d' do d' do d' do do
do do d' do d' do d' do do
do do d' do d' do d' do do
do d' d' do d' d' do d'
do do do d' do do do do

(Do) d' do d' do d' do do
do do d' do d' do d' do do
do do d' do d' do d' do do
do d' d' do d' d' do d'
do do do d' do do do

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'm 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.

That's the story of Rocky Rac-coon
