intro 
----- 
 
Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota 
There lived a young boy name of 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 dobt 
to help with good Rocky's revival. 
 
Oh yeah, yeah 
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da... 
 
regards,

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.

About the artist behind Rocky Racoon Tab:

The Beatles were a pop and rock group from Liverpool, England formed in 1960. Primarily consisting of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals), and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals) throughout their career, The Beatles are recognised for leading the mid-1960s musical "British Invasion" into the United States. Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1950s rock and roll and homegrown skiffle, the group explored genres ranging from Tin Pan Alley to psychedelic rock. Their clothes, styles, and statements made them trend-setters, while their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s. After the band broke up in 1970, all four members embarked on solo careers.

The Beatles are one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. The Beatles are the best-selling musical group in history. In the United Kingdom, The Beatles released more than 40 different singles, albums, and EPs that reached number one, earning more number one albums (15) than any other group in UK chart history. This commercial success was repeated in many other countries; their record company, EMI, estimated that by 1985 they had sold over one billion records worldwide.[1] According to the Recording Industry Association of America, The Beatles have sold more albums in the United States than any other band.[2] In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked The Beatles number one on its list of 100 Greatest Rock & Roll Artists of All Time. According to that same magazine, The Beatles' innovative music and cultural impact helped define the 1960s, and their influence on pop culture is still evident today.
