Rocky Raccoon – Beatles

Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
There lived 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

Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
Only to find Gideon’s Bible
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
To shot 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 called herself Lill
But ev’ryone knew her as Nancy

Now she and her man who called himself Dan
Were in the next room at the hoe down
Rocky bust 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

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 am able

Now Rocky Raccoon he fell back in his room
Only to find Gideon’s Bible
