Tuning:EADGBE

This is how I tend to pick the chords that are used,
you could always strum them but this is the style he has on the piano.
Also, the chords above the words aren't
in the exact place that you should change,
it all depends how you sing it, just work it out for yourself.

     Am7                Dm7
Rocky Racoon, he was a fool unto himself
                      G7              C
For he would not swallow, his foolish pride
     Am7                                    Dm7
Mind you, coming from a little town in Minnesota,
                      G7
It is not the kind of thing a young guy did
                        C
When a fellow went and stole his chick away from him.

    Am7                    Dm7 or D7
Now, Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
  G7                 C
Only to find Gideon's Bible
    Am7                 Dm7 or D7
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
     G7                 C
To shoot off the legs of his rival

     Am7                 Dm7
His rival it seems had broken his dreams
      G7                   C
By stealing the girl of his fancy.
     Am7                Dm7
Her name was Magil and she called herself Lil
    G7                  C
But everyone knew her as Nancy.

     Am7                Dm7
Now she and her man who called himself Dan
     G7                C
Were in the next room at the hoe down
     Am7                 Dm7
And Rocky burst in and grinning a grin
        G7               C
He said Danny Boy this is a showdown

     Am7                Dm7
But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot
    G7                    C
And Rocky collapsed in the corner.

(eugh)
  Am7
Da la la dum ba dum da da
  Dm7
Da la la dum ba dum da da
  G7                  C
Da la la dum ba dum da da
(eugh)

   Am7                 Dm7
The doctor walked in stinking of gin
   G7                 C
Proceeded to lie on the table
          Am7                       Dm7
The doctor said "Rock, you met your match, Son."

Rocky said, no it's only a scratch
               G7
I'll be better soon Doc, I'll be better soon.
       C
Well come on Rock, come on Rock.

     Am7              Dm7
Rocky Raccoon fell back in his room
     G7              C
Only to find Gideon's Bible
    Am7               Dm7
Gideon checked out and he left him no doubt
    G7                C
To hell with good Rocky's revival.
(yeah)
   Am7
Da la la dum ba dum da da
   Dm7
Da la la dum ba dum da da
   G7                C
Da la la dum ba dum da da
   Am7
Da la la dum ba dum da da
   Dm7                            (start slowing down)
Da la la dum ba dum da da
  G7                 C*
Da la la dum ba dum da da

           C*
