Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota,

There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon(na)

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


Rock Raccoon checked into his room

Only to find Gideon's bible

Rocky had come equipped with the gun

to shoot off the legs of his rival


His rival it seems had broken his dreams

By stealing the girls of his fancy

Her name was Magill, 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 show down


Daniel was hot he drew first and shot

And Rocky collapsed in the corner

Da, da, 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

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


And 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

Ah, oh yeah, yeah

Da, da, da, da
