HERE'S ROCKY RACOON BY THE BEATLES (TAB). I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LYRICS,

(MUCH LESS REMEMBER THE WORDS AS I'M PLAYING). IF YOU NEED THE LYRICS,

JUST LISTEN TO THE WHITE ALBUM.

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...

You will have to listen to the song to get it wright, but they always hit

the root note

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.
